I didn't realize that it was already built into TeXworks. Nice to know.

I believe a old version (3.07a) is on CTAN but it has been much  
improved and is up to version (3.21j). You can get it from <http://www.phys.psu.edu/~collins/software/latexmk/versions.html

for automating pdftricks and pst-pdf processing and the engines, etc.,  
for that processing can, of course, be left out. Of course the .engine  
files are also shell scripts and I don't know how Windows users deal  
with that.

Right now I've added the path to the TeXShop engine files to the  
TeXworks path list and created TeXworks typesetting wngines that  
simply call the engine files. Seems to work fine on the Mac. May need  
revision for other systems, but the idea is there.

I'm just trying to generate ideas for possible later implementation.

Good Luck,
