Re: [AUCTeX] shell-escape

This from the man pages of pdflatex:

Enable the \write18{command} construct. The command can be any shell command. This construct is normally disallowed for secu-
              rity reasons.

Disable the \write18{command} construct, even if it is enabled
              in the texmf.cnf file.

Those of us who use Context and want to include Metapost code in our files, or those using the emp.sty in Latex to include Metapost code in their latex source, need to do one of two things:

1. Enable write18 permananently in texmf.cnf, or

2. Use the switch -shell-escape at compile time.

It could be an option like source specials in Auctex.

Is there a way in Auctex to enable shell-escape when compiling in
Latex and/or Context?

What is that supposed to mean?
