Hello tex-k,

I am using pdflatex to produce pdf documents.  I use
Acrobat Reader on
XP to wiev the resulting pdf file.  The annoing part
is that I have to
close the file from Acrobat before running pdflatex,
pdflatex asks me to give a different filename.  How to
make pdflatex
overwrite the old file, or how to make Acrobat
insensitive?  I looked
at the help of pdflatex and acrobat and could not
figure an answer.  

Thanks a lot,
