# [texhax] Suppressing intermediary output

Hello, I was wondering if somebody could help with a quick problem.  I am using LaTeX but I think the issue lies with TeX too :-)

When using latex to generate a DVI file, intermediary files (of at least log and aux) are generated.  I do not have any need for these and want to know a command line option or something, which means I don't have to manually delete them every time.

I know the command \nofiles prevents aux files from being generated, but can not find anything to prevent the log file from being generated.

Hopefully somebody here knows the answer
