All modern TeX implementations allow you to type the TeX input into one 
window (the "edit window"); hit some key combination like cmd-T; and 
instantly see the typeset material fully formatted in final form in a 
second window (the "typeset window").

[Unless your TeX input has some error, in which case the typeset output 
will only appear up a point where the error occurs; a description and 
explanation of the error will appear in a third "log window"  -- and 
hitting some other key combo will take you back to the input window 
**with the cursor positioned at the point or line where the error was 
encountered".]

This has been the case for many years.
