[AUCTeX] questions on "Tex region" for multifile

Dear David,

Thank you very much for the help! I have installed AucTex successfully!

The "Tex region" function can work for a single master file, but I still can't make it to work for multifile. I have added the following lines in the .emacs :

(require 'tex-site)

(setq-default TeX-master nil)
(setq TeX-parse-self t)
(setq TeX-auto-save t)

but it never asks me for the name of the master file.

I tried:

1. put the master file name ``mymaster'' into the .emacs to replace the nil;

2. add the

%%% Local Variables:
%%% TeX-master: ``mymaster''
%%% End:

in the end of the buffer file;

3. add the


in the beginning of the buffer file,


in the end of the buffer file;

they all failed.

Do you have any idea about what else can be done to fulfil "Tex region" for multifile document?

Thanks for your time and look forward to a positive answer.

Best regards,

Dear Kresten,

Thanks for the manual of AucTex.

Well, if anybody knows how to actually reach Kresten these days, I'd
not mind getting a pointer.

I have used Emacs and MikTex on Windows for a long time. Now I want
the function of viewing the print output of a small Tex region
without compiling the whole document.

Is this function available in Emacs itself without AucTex?

Uh, actually I don't know.  After all, this _is_ the AUCTeX users'

There is a menu in Emacs "Tex --> Tex Region", but I can't make it

It is likely that it requires the
to be on a line of their own, without indentation and in exactly that
form.  And in the file that you are wanting to compile.  If this is
already the case, I am out of guesses.

AUCTeX will, by the way, have similar requirements to get this to

1. Is the "MSYS tool set" in your manual the "MSYS-1.0.10.exe" from
<>, or the
"msysDTK-1.0.1.exe"? I downloaded and ran the "MSYS-1.0.10.exe".

Sounds ok.

2. The GNU EMacs and MikTex are already in my machine. I can't carry
out the step 5 (page 8) in your manual and need more details
there. To have "bash", there is no .exe from
<>, only source code. And itself has a
"configure" in its directory. Could you help me to be able to
takeoff in step 5?

MSYS, when installed, places an icon on your desktop.  Double-click on
that icon, and this starts a "bash" shell.
