patchSynctex: Communication Between Editor and Viewer for Literate Programs

This utility eases the debugging of literate documents ('noweb' files) by patching the synchronization information (the '.synctex(.gz)' file) produced by 'pdflatex' with concordance information produced by 'Sweave' or 'knitr' and 'Sweave' or 'knitr' ; this allows for bilateral communication between a text editor (visualizing the 'noweb' source) and a viewer (visualizing the resultant 'PDF'), thus bypassing the intermediate 'TeX' file.
