How to find the wrong in the tex file?

  • This is not the part of the error message from which we can say where is the error.. It is before that – Red Sep 12 '13 at 9:07
  • Most likely, you forgot to close a mathematical environment. You should check your code carefully, since it might be hard to automagically isolate the mistake. – Siminore Sep 12 '13 at 9:08

The * prompt means that TeX has run off the end of the file, despite the fact it says to type \end it is better to type \stop or just \anyoldrubbish to get an error then type x to stop at the ? prompt.

The most direct reason for getting that is to forget \end{document} although sometimes you have an \end{document} but an earlier error prevents it being seen for some reason.

Your first error was a math $ missing, it is better to stop at that ? prompt with x and correct that first.
