Use TeXShop instead of X11 for Matlab plots
Authored by: tpavlic on Jul 17, '07 01:26:45PM

Skim is probably a better alternative now.

It also autorefreshes from disk. It uses kqueue to do these updates, so they are event-based rather than updates resulting from polling the disk periodically. This is clearly a good way to do things, but the downside is that if the file gets deleted, updates will cease to be sent (e.g., what happens with simpdftex that can be easily fixed).

Regardless, it has lots of other great features. The author of the discontinued PDFView suggests that people use it instead. I think it will become the dominant PDF viewer in OS X.

Because it's simply a PDF viewer, it seems more appropriate (and probably opens faster) than using TeXShop for MATLAB previews.
