Exactly? RTFM

I just can tell you how I do it - there might be much better ways.

I've put the following into the extention file:

# Pascal
        Open=fpc %{FPC parameters:} %f

I normally edit the file by selecting it and pressing F4, 
then I save the file and leave the editor, 
and then I only have to press Enter twice and the file compiles.

Hint: when you use the command line in mc, you just need to press 
Alt + Enter to include the selected filename.

P.S.: The docs also tell about an "extension dependent pop-up menu",
but I don't know, how to get that. Does anybody know?
