* Introduction -*-compilation-*-
This shows the different kinds of messages compile recognizes by default and
how they are rendered. It is intended both to help you decide which matchers
you need and as a test of the matchers. Move the mouse over a colored part or
use `compilation-message-face', to see how much text was actually matched.
The important part is the symbol(s) line at the beginning of each entry.
These are the symbols you can customize `compilation-error-regexp-alist' for,
to match the messages shown in that entry. A few complex cases have more than
one symbol, which should be selected together.

* IBM jikes
symbols: jikes-file jikes-line
Jikes separates file names from the actual error messages. For visual
feedback the underline and the word "Error" on the 3rd line is fontified like
a file name would be.

* Microsoft C/C++
symbol: msft
This used to be less selective and allowed characters other than parens around
the line number, but that caused confusion for GNU-style error messages. This
used to reject spaces and dashes in file names, but they are valid now; so I
made it more strict about the error message that follows.

* Sparc Pascal
symbols: sparc-pascal-file sparc-pascal-line sparc-pascal-example
These messages don't contain a file name. Instead the compiler gives a
message whenever the file being compiled is changed. For visual feedback the
error code is fontified like a file name would be.

* Directory tracking
Directories are matched via `compilation-directory-matcher'. Files which are
not shown as full paths are searched for relative to the directory where the
message was issued.

* Miscellaneous
These are not messages that can be gone to. They are only highlighted via
`compilation-mode-font-lock-keywords' to recognize some useful information at
a glance.
