TeXShop is a TeX previewer for Mac OS X, written in Cocoa. Since pdf is a native file format on OS X, TeXShop uses "pdftex" and "pdflatex" rather than "tex" and "latex" to typeset in its default configuration; these programs in the standard TeX Live distribution of TeX produce pdf output instead of dvi output.
DID YOU KNOW?
LaTeX is the abbreviated form of Lamport TeX, named after Leslie Lamport, the original developer of the program. It is based on TeX, the typesetting system developed by Donald Knuth. In both cases, ‘TeX’ is pronounced in the same way as the word “tech.’ Despite the identical spelling, LaTeX is not pronounced in the same way as latex, the synthetic rubber material. This is because Knuth derived ‘TeX’ from the Greek word ?????, which means skill, art, or technique.
The first three letters of the Greek word were used: tau, epsilon, and chi. The difference between the two is that LaTex uses macros, while TeX does not. LaTeX is widely used in the fields of mathematics, physics, statistics, engineering, economics, and computer science, where it is used to typeset complex mathematical formulae. Nowadays, LaTeX is the most widely used method for using TeX. It uses a system called markup tagging to format text. Compared to WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) editors like Microsoft Word, where the content is always shown in the program as how the final printed copy will look like, LaTeX uses plain text and markup tags. The markup tags are commands for text formatting, and the formatted text can only be viewed through a previewer program.
