[jasspa] Running with MikTex on Microsoft Windows

the MikTex latex job prompts the user when there is an error. I've been
trying to sort this one out but cannot find an option to enable ALL
errors, but not to stop i.e. much the same as a C/C++ compiler.
The only solution I've come up with is a modification to hklatex.emf
!if &seq $platform "win32"
; Win32, lets assume that everybody is using MikTex, and why not !!
set-variable %latex-view &cond &seq %latex-view "ERROR" "yap" %latex-view
set-variable %latex-compile &cond &seq %latex-compile "ERROR" "latex --c-style-errors --halt-on-error " %latex-compile
; Add hooks for the latex compiler errors
add-next-line "*latex-compile*" ""
add-next-line "*latex-compile*" "%f:%l:"
set-variable %latex-compile &cond &seq %latex-compile "ERROR" "latex" %latex-compile
set-variable %latex-view &cond &seq %latex-view "ERROR" "xvdi" %latex-view
The down side is that it stops on the first error - but does not hang. Note
that I added the add-next-line. This allows you to use "C-x `" to goto
the error line.
This is bit of a compromise but does seem to do the job.
