aah, i thought that might have been the case. cheers.

yeah... i've been doing that as a workaround, but it would be nice to be
able to have it detect warnings.

if this function were made more advanced... like parsing the whole output,
it would allow warning detection AND also auto jump-to the first line of
warnings/errors that the compile command produces. but thats an exercise
for the more confident elisp user :-)

thanks for the function... it basically does what i wanted :-)
