recently I have updated auctex-11.89.5. Then, I got Symbol's function definition is void: signum when I have some compile errors and go to the error by hitting C-c `.

I don't know about lisp code and need some help to tackle this problem.

Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the report. Try adding this line at the beginning of your init file as a workaround: (require 'cl). I'll need to fix this, though. – giordano Sep 4 '16 at 16:15

This error was due to a recent change introduced in AUCTeX (to fix another bug reported in StackExchange network). It has been now fixed upstream, as a temporary fix you can add this line to the beginning of your init file:

(require 'cl)

However, please note that in version 11.88 of AUCTeX has been introduced a nicely formatted list of errors and warnings that can be accessed with M-x TeX-error-overview RET, or from the menu CommandError Overview. You can navigate between errors with n and p, so you can forget about C-c `.

    Thanks for the solution. The TeX-error-overview is awesome. – Seong Sep 5 '16 at 11:58
