Is it possible to suppress messages in vim that are coming from the system or shell? E.g. message from sysadmin or batch queue messages when jobs complete.
Note that I want to specify this at the vim command line or in .vimrc, NOT at the shell or system level. I am using an obscure operating system (OpenVMS) so answers specific to Windows, Linux, or MacOS will unfortunately not be helpful to me.
The rationale, if it matters: I'll often have a large number of batch jobs complete which writes over my text in vim and I have to repeatedly hit Ctrl-L to refresh the screen. I don't want to turn off the messages at the system or shell level because I want to see them. I just don't want them messing up my text in vim.
In a different editor the system messages would display at the bottom of the window without screwing up the text so if anyone knows how to make vim do that, I would also consider accepting that as an answer.
