When I do M-x compile, if the output is more than a screen long, I would like it to scroll down so I can see the last page of output. Currently, it shows only the first page. Is there a way for me to fix this?

`M-x apropos RET compil SPC scroll RET' yields:

  Variable: *Non-nil to scroll the *compilation* buffer window as output 
Plist: standard-value variable-documentation custom-type custom-version custom-requests

Clicking on the symbol or variable link displays:

compilation-scroll-output is a variable defined in `compile.el'.
Its value is nil

*Non-nil to scroll the *compilation* buffer window as output appears.

Setting it causes the Compilation mode commands to put point at the
end of their output window so that the end of the output is always
visible rather than the beginning.

You can customize this variable.
