# *.aux file not generated

I am using `\documentclass[margin]{res}`. On running latex/xelatex, `*.aux` file is not generated. Because of this the references in the document are not being cited. I am using `biblatex` for citations.

What might be wrong?

By default (or design), the `res` documentclass does not create an auxiliary file since it executes

``````\nofiles         % resume's don't need .aux files
``````

around line 200. Modify your main file to resemble:

``````\let\nofiles\relax % Void the \nofiles command
\documentclass[margin]{res}% Resume documentclass (http://ctan.org/pkg/res)
...
``````

Alternatively, although not preferred, you will have to comment out this line in order for the document to generate `.aux` files.

Why on Earth does it do that?! –  cfr Dec 31 '14 at 2:33
@werner I was sure your solution would eliminate my problem, but even after generating .aux file, my pdf has no bookmarks (I use the same 'hyperref' seeting as usual). Any idea, what could be the problem? –  homo_loquens Apr 3 at 5:28
@homo_loquens: Yes. The `res` class modified the traditional `\section` commands as well, so they don't function as expected. If you want to introduce bookmarks at specific locations in your resume, consider using some of the techniques employed by the `bookmark` package. –  Werner Apr 3 at 5:44
@werner I don't want them at specific place, I want my usual sections to be my usual bookmarks) Any suggestions on doing this? Simply putting 'bookmark' package doesn't solve the issue... –  homo_loquens Apr 3 at 22:25
