I am trying to use BibTeX on my Mac to produce some simple citation references.
I copied some example code from online tutorials into a
.tex file and a
.bib file. The first LaTeX run on TeXShop gives me a PDF without any references. An
.aux file is generated and valid. But I am failing at the next step. Normally BibTeX should run on the recently produced
.aux file and generate an
.bbl file which LaTeX uses in his second compile run, right? It doesn't. There is no
.bbl file produced and I am getting no messages about it. It appears that the step "BibTeX runs on the
.aux file to generate an
.bbl file" never starts.
I am using TeXShop on Mac OS. Any ideas? How do I even start the BibTeX thing on Mac OS? When I'm working on Windows in TeXnicCenter it does this step by itself.
