The LaTeX application reads in your source code and creates the typeset document, the
output file. This book assumes that you will be using the
version of LaTeX that produces PDF files (PDFLaTeX). If you are
using TeXWorks (see §3. From Source Code to Typeset Output), you need to select the
“PDFLaTeX” item from the drop-down list. If you are using
TeXnicCenter, select the “LaTeX⇒PDF” build
profile. If you are
using WinEdt, when you want to build your document click on the
button marked “PDFLaTeX” rather than the one marked “LaTeX”.
If you are using a terminal or command prompt, use the command
pdflatex rather than latex. (TeXnicCenter, WinEdt
and using the terminal or command prompt approach are described in
the supplemental material.)
