I could add a "debug" option, which you can run in case of trouble. I
tried to run in modes other than nonstop, and found that annoying.
Latex will not finish when an error occurs and it is run in anything
other than nonstop mode, it will just sit and way for input. This
means that the only way to continue in that mode is to always bring
the terminal forward before a run, error or no error (and perhaps send
it to the background if all went fine). This is something I do not
want myself. If you fancy this, the calls are in the CompileTeX-engine
shell script. Be sure to add lines that look like
osascript -e 'tell application "Terminal" to activate'
osascript -e 'tell application "BBedit" to activate'
in strategic locations.
Note that the full compile will run the file and go the the indicated
source of the error if an error is detected.
