I really don't understand this at all....I have a latex document that was given by my professor. I try to hit the green arrow to get a PDF (which from what I can tell online is what I'm supposed to do.) Next, I'm apparently supposed to get a dropdown but I don't. Nothing happens The console gets this message
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.1415926-2.5-1.40.14 (TeX Live 2013) restricted \write18 enabled. entering extended mode (./homework01.tex"
I have no clue if that's supposed to be an error message but it doesn't seem to list any error!
I'm on OSX Mavericks if it matters.
Edit: I've managed to realize I needed a couple things. I updated packages, and I followed instructions to use pdflatex homework01 to create the homework01.pdf file. Now when I load into TexWorks I DO see the PDF on the right, however now I don't know how to update it to reflect the latex. Do I have to do pdflatex every time? There's no way to have the latex on the left match the PDF on the right? Google search doesn't seem to be helping me at all I can't find anybody else asking this question unless I'm searching with the wrong terms.
Edit2: As requested, my file system. The pdf file was created in terminal with pdflatex README homework pdf tex
