check your document if you have a pdftex option set, for instance to graphicx like
`\usepackage[pdftex]{graphicx}`

or somewhere else. If you use \pdfoutput=1 or the pdftex option for example to graphicx, color, xcolor or hyperref then pdf output will be produced, even if the output-format is set to dvi.

this was exactly the case! I didn't have my eyes open when I chose a file to test the compiler

thanks guys!
