comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
Hm, it does not seem like this is a TeX question after all ,but rather a Vim question. Anyway, can you find out where does Vim save the file? How excatly are you openning the file in Vim at the beginning?

It is also possible to create braces like that directly in Geogebra using a custom tool, see geogebratube.org/material/show/id/33499

comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
If you have LaTeX-suite installed, you should be able to type \ll in the normal mode in Vim, and the document should compile. However, it pretty much does the same thing as :w followed by :!pdflatex %, so I doubt it will fix your problem.

comment compiling pdflatex from the terminal in vim
Can you post the exact error message you get when running pdflatex? Also, what does Vim status line tell you about the file encoding? Could it be that the file was somehow converted and some invisible characters are messing up the compilation?

comment Possible to have a shell script containing the whole LaTeX document?
See the zeroth's edit: enclosing the THEEND string in single quotes prevents $ expansion and makes all the quoting unncessary.

With zerod's edit to the script, the note about parameter expansion at the end is no longer relevant.

Good point. You will have to escape that too, and use \\\$ instead. But I am not editting the answer again, because there is probably something else that will have to be escaped, and this will never end :)

This is fairly well known. Fadings do not work well with some pdf viewers.
