I'm quoting from the info-manual:

,----
|    A numeric argument, as in `M-1 M-!', says to insert terminal output
| into the current buffer instead of a separate buffer.  It puts point
| before the output, and sets the mark after the output.  For instance,
| `M-1 M-! gunzip < foo.gz <RET>' would insert the uncompressed
| equivalent of `foo.gz' into the current buffer.
`----

For more details have a look in info: Emacs->Shell->Single Shell
