Re: M-x compile for different file extensions

I just use makefiles everywhere.

The advantage of compiling within emacs is more than just the
convenience of not having to go off to a shell window.  It's using

        M-x next-error

to step through the errors and have emacs go right to the file and
line you need to fix.
