Hi, I am just setting out trying to teach myself TeX.  I downloaded gwTeX
and figured out how to create TeX files using Unix from the terminal on my
Mac, and how to compile them there into pdf's or whatever.

Can TeX programming be done from Unix alone or is something like TeXShop
really necessary?  What do those additional programs do that can't be done
through the terminal?
