This is what I wrote yesterday:

My problem concerns

Tex master and the include command.

I have for example a master file
main.tex which looks like (leaving all the usepackages out)
\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\begin{document}

\include{hoja1}
\include{hoja2}
\end{document}

In the two slave files I have set the master to main.tex.

In these slave files I can run TeX-command-buffer and only this
file/buffer is compiled. However the resulting pdf/dvi is called
_region_.pdf and this is a big restriction:

-  when I visit some time later the directory I have now idea
to which file _region_.pdf corresponds.

-  when I want to send such pdf I have to rename it which is also
cumbersome.

I understand now that it has to be this way.

That is why I came up with using the latex style: subfiles, the
corresponding files look

\documentclass[12pt]{article}
\usepackage{subfiles}
\begin{document}

\subfile{hoja1.tex}
\subfile{hoja2.tex}

\end{document}

and the slave files for example

\documentclass[main]{subfiles}
\begin{document}

text

\end{document}
%%% Local Variables:
%%% mode: latex
%%% TeX-master: t
%%% End:

Then I can run latex via TeX-command-master on the slave, the resulting
pdf is called hoja1.pdf (I have a common header file), *but* auctex does
not scan the headers of the master file and then I can not use parts of
auctex functionality.

If set the master file to the subfile-master file then
TeX-command-master will run really on that file which is not what
subfiles is made for.

So in short:

-  could auctex support subfiles, that is scan the file main.tex
when using a slave file.

thanks
