Each job I run (using System 10.4, TeXShop 2008 distribution, LaTeX
format), the console begins with four message lines saying:
This is pdfTeXk, Version 3.1415926-1.40.9 (Web2C 7.5.7)
%&-line parsing enabled.
entering extended mode
My understanding is that the second line means system commands might be
executed, representing a security issue.
But I don't understand what the next two lines mean. The problem with
searching the web for these phrases is that the vast majority of matches
are to similar log files, so that didn't help much.
Thanks in advance for any elucidation.
