I \input{b.tex} in a.tex.

I made changes to b.tex, and tried to recompile a.tex by C-c C-c in AUCTeX, but it didn't work since a.tex hadn't been changed.

How can I recompile then?

  • Does the manual link to the tex-compile command in the menu-bar work when a.tex has not been modified?

  • @Tim: do you mean can you select the menu when using Emacs through a terminal emulator? You should be able to -- alternately, you can hit f10 (or M-x menu-bar-open) to open up the menu bar.

C-c C-c calls TeX-command-master, which prompts you for a command (with what it expects you to choose as the default option). Even if it does not detect that the document has changed, you can always force it to compile by entering LaTeX after you C-c C-c and it prompts you.
