# I am having problems with typeset?

My document is called introduction.tex. I have the following code:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\title{Identification of potential therapeutic targets in human breast cancer}
\author{myName}
\date{August 2015}
\end{document}


This is what I get when I "click" the typeset button on the TexShop interface:

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159265-2.6-1.40.15 (TeX Live 2014)
restricted \write18 enabled.

I would greatly appreciate the community's feedback. Thank you! :)

• Add \maketitle after your \date command. You might also want to type some text after that ... perhaps something like "Hello World! I'm using \LaTeX{}." – jon Feb 13 '15 at 2:36

You have not given the compiler anything to publish. Just put Hi right before the \end to verify this. And you need to move some content around and add a command for the titlepage as follows

\documentclass{article}
\title{Identification of potential therapeutic targets in human breast cancer}
\author{myName}
\date{August 2015}
\begin{document}
\maketitle
hi

\end{document}

• Strictly speaking, you don't need to have the "metadata" before \begin{document} (for some classes, at least). – jon Feb 13 '15 at 3:00
