emacs + auctex - opening output PDF inside emacs buffer


I am using Emacs 23 together with AUCtex.

When I generate the output PDF file using C-c C-c, the default suggested view command is "xdg-open test.pdf". A new window then opens with my PDF output file.

I know Emacs can also open PDF inside a buffer.

Can somebody explain how I can setup Emacs that when I generate my Latex output using C-c C-c, the output automatically opens inside a second Emacs buffer ?

I have seen people do this, but I do not manage to figure out how.
