How does one go about finding the problem with a document when the only errors is "Emergency Stop" in line 0. I have a rather long document and I fixed all of the other problems it told me to fix but this one persists. Any ideas?

Perhaps this might elude to some ideas: Shortest code causing “Emergency stop.” error –  Werner Jun 7 '12 at 20:05
    
Did you recently update any files? Did you switch your compiler? What distribution are you using? Have you restarted your computer (sometimes, on Windows, an editor could have problems initializing things; at least I've found that with TXC)? Many questions. –  Werner Jun 7 '12 at 20:07

Please try to reduce your document, by commenting out parts, to a minimal complete version producing the error, and edit your question with this minimal version; it's even possible than in this process you find the cause of the error for yourself. –  Gonzalo Medina Jun 7 '12 at 21:11

The way is equal to provide a minimal working example:

reduce your document, by commenting out parts, to a minimal complete version producing the error

Possible than in this process you find the cause of the error for yourself.
