Hello

I am a professor of mathematics and my essential activity is to
create exercises which I arrange in a structure called "Base"

Often, I work in the following situation:

I create a file "exercise.tex", i put this file in the "Base"

then I create a new file "try.tex" :

\documentclass{myclass}
\begin{document}
\input{exercise.tex}
\end{document}

I do not have enough knowledge on scripts to obtain this:

In Textmate, when i work on an file exercise.tex, i would like wih
one command or script (?)
to compile "try.tex" directly.

I think that a modification of "LATEX & VIEW" should be enough...

With this idea and
with FILE = exercise.tex (the file which I create)
with VAR_FAV_CLASS =  myclass

1) modification of FILE in ---> NEWFILE

NEWFILE =
"\documentclass[]{VAR_FAV_CLASS}
\begin{document}
\input{$File} \end{document}" 2) Compilation of NEWFILE like in "LATEX & VIEW" Is it possible ? Would somebody have an idea to build this script? in LATEX & VIEW, line 35/36 there is if [ "$TEX" != latexmk.pl ]
then "$TEX"${TM_LATEX_OPTIONS:=--shell -escape -
interaction=nonstopmode -file-line-error-style} "$1" I'm not sure but "$1" is perhaps the file  I want modify

Thanks
