I already have this:

tell application "BBEdit"
    save active document of text window 1
    set texdatei to file of active document of text window 1
end tell

tell application "TeXShop"
    open texdatei
    typeset texdatei
    --latex texdatei -- another attempt
end tell

but it doesn't recompile after I've edited it and tell BBEdit to run the script (thus my question about just typesetting the frontmost window).

I'm sure I'm missing something elementary:-)
