Using makefiles can save time when compiling lots of source files into one program. vim can run the makefile without leaving the editing session:

:map :make - map the F9 key to run make
:set makeprg - change what :make does
:make will compile if you are using a Makefile. Use these to examine the compile errors:

:copen - open a mini-window with list of errors
- hit enter on an error to jump to line
:cclose - closes the mini-window
:cw - toggles the mini-window (if errors exist)
