The Text Compiler / Edit window is the process that reads the source files and compiles them into binary files for maximum space conservation on the target system.
Technical Note: During the build process, each source file is compiled with a separate instance of the Text Compiler. Each process runs with a hidden window, unless there is a compile error. The separate process approach maximizes build speed when a multi-core or multi-processor system is available. However, system or file errors can result in numerous windows being shown in an error state due to this (typically hidden) aspect. If you experience this, be sure to check Global Properties (SOURCE path), system configuration (memory/hard drive space available), and project integrity (have you done anything manual, or moved files, etc.?).
