(defun next-error (&optional argp)
"Visit next compilation error message and corresponding source code.
This operates on the output from the \\[compile] and \\[grep] commands.
If all preparsed error messages have been processed,
the error message buffer is checked for new ones.
If all the error messages parsed so far have been processed already,
the message buffer is checked for new ones.
A prefix arg specifies how many error messages to move;
negative means move back to previous error messages.
Just C-u as a prefix means reparse the error message buffer
and start at the first error.
\\[next-error] normally applies to the most recent compilation started,
but as long as you are in the middle of parsing errors from one compilation
output buffer, you stay with that compilation output buffer.
\\[next-error] normally uses the most recently started compilation or
grep buffer. However, it can operate on any buffer with output from
the \\[compile] and \\[grep] commands, or, more generally, on any
buffer in Compilation mode or with Compilation Minor mode enabled. To
specify use of a particular buffer for error messages, type
\\[next-error] in that buffer.
Use \\[next-error] in a compilation output buffer to switch to
processing errors from that compilation.
Once \\[next-error] has chosen the buffer for error messages,
it stays with that buffer until you use it in some other buffer which
uses Compilation mode or Compilation Minor mode.
See variables `compilation-parse-errors-function' and
\`compilation-error-regexp-alist' for customization ideas."
