Actually, by "I" above I meant the special compilation function I'm
planning to write.  Something like:

(defun my-compile ()
  (interactive)
  (compile (format "gcc %s" (file-name-nondirectory (buffer-file-name))))
  (when-compilation-is-complete
   (lambda ()
     (when (not (there-were-errors))
       (kill-buffer "*term*")
       (term "./a.out")))))

What I'm not quite clear on at the moment is how to write the
when-compilation-is-complete and there-were-errors functions.

Actually, for there-were-errors I could obviously parse the content of
the *compilation* buffer, but I was hoping the same information might
be available more directly.
