I have a style sheet that has some problems. At this point I am just writing my paper and do not really care about \viiipt warnings and errors. So I need to press enter a million times to skip errors while my latex file is compiling .

Is there any way to tell the compiler (Latex2Pdf) that I want to skip all the errors?

Type latex --help and check out -interaction=. An example can look like this:

 latex -interaction=nonstopmode file.tex

Correct the errors directly. At some point in the future you will have an error which completly prevent the generation of the document and then you will have a very hard time to get around this problem if you have tons of other error messages still lurking around in your log.

You can use \keepsilent in the preamble. This will suppress all messages as well. However, it is normally best to keep on correcting as you go along.

\keepsilent doesn't seem to be a standard LaTeX macro. Did you mean \scrollmode? – TH. Aug 31 '10 at 20:06
