How to change the default compile command?

How to change the default compile command?

How to change the default compile command?

(OP)
Hi,

  I use the Windows port of Emacs(21.3.1) and when I type 'M-x compile' it proposes the default compile command 'make -k'. How can I redefine this to 'nmake' in my .emacs profile?

This should work for you:

CODE

(add-hook 'c-mode-common-hook
  (lambda ()
    (set (make-local-variable 'compile-command) "nmake")))

I tried to put the three lines at the end of my .emacs, save it, and start a new emacs.
Then I typed 'M-x compile' but 'make -k' is still proposed.

Have you anoter solution?

Just try this.  The previous only works in C mode and derivatives.

CODE

(setq compile-command "nmake")
