[texhax] Detecting in-document-ness?

I'm writing a book and, while writing it, would typically prefer to be 
able to view the current chapter on its own.

Is there a standard/common way to detect if LaTeX is already in a 
document and only if not, then do the normal start of document 
processing, like \documentclass{} and \begin{document} (and maybe a few 
other things that I'll need)?
