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.
