I am learning latex, and a book I am eading says that in order to renumber equations properly (after addition/removal), I need to typeset twice. Does does "typeset twice" mean?

Thank you!

    Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. Calling pdflatex, latex, lualatex or whatever compiler you use, twice is typesetting twice. – Juri Robl Feb 9 '15 at 22:11

    "typeset" is the wrong word. It should be "compile", or "run (La)TeX" or "build". The numbering of equations will be correct after one run. The thing changing for the second one will be the references and your ToC, LoF... – LaRiFaRi Feb 9 '15 at 22:13

    @LaRiFaRi Some editors use 'typeset'. I tend to use 'typeset' because that's what I learnt first. I disagree that it is wrong. In a sense, it is the specific kind of compilation relevant to TeX. – cfr Feb 10 '15 at 1:20

  • There was already a question using the term «typeset» as a synonym of «compile»: tex.stackexchange.com/questions/107967/… – Ludenticus Feb 10 '15 at 2:02

Here "typeset" means "run latex filename (or pdflatex filename) to produce a .dvi (or .pdf) file". It is a slightly unusual term; "compile" is more common.
