#### 1.3.2.2 Choosing an output format

From a LaTeX file, you can produce DVI output, or a PDF file directly via `pdflatex`. You can switch on source specials for easier navigation in the output file, or tell `latex` to stop after an error (usually `\noninteractive` is used, to allow you to detect all errors in a single run).

These options are controlled by toggles, the keystrokes should be easy to memorize:

C-c C-t C-p

This command toggles between DVI and PDF output

C-c C-t C-i

toggles interactive mode

C-c C-t C-s

toggles source specials support

C-c C-t C-o

toggles usage of Omega/lambda.

There is also another possibility: compile the document with `tex` (or `latex`) and then convert the resulting DVI file to PDF using `dvips``ps2pdf` sequence. If you want to go by this route, when `TeX-PDF-via-dvips-ps2pdf` variable is non-nil, AUCTeX will suggest you to run the appropriate command when you type C-C C-c. For details, see Processor Options.
