I think everyone knows that vim can't display multiline messages in quickfix (yes, I know that it can parse them and show them as one big line). I thought about ways to workaround this and thought what if vim can wrap lines at arbitrary characters, I know it can wrap lines that are longer than number current screen. Maybe it can be done with arbitrary lines? If it would be so I could insert some characters instead of newlines in multiline messages so that vim would break lines at this characters.
linebreak option instructs vim to wrap at the characters specified in the
breakat option (by default spaces and a handful of punctuation characters). You can choose some "harmless" control character. For example, ^Y or control+Y
set wrap linebreak exe "set breakat=\<c-y>"
I think everyone knows that vim can't display^Ymultiline messages in quickfix
I think everyone knows that vim can't display^Y multiline messages in quickfix
This introduces the problem that
<c-y> is visible as
^Y. For this you could use vim's conceal feature.
syn match QFBreak /\%o31/ conceal cchar=↲ set cole=2
To completely hide the character, use
set cole=3 instead.
