Discl. I'm perfectly aware of
:silent :delete or
silent :normal dd, I'm also aware of
My context is that I run unit tests with vimrunner on travis, with the version of Vim currently available on travis (7.4.152). vimrunner uses +clientserver feature and
:redir to execute the commands sent to the Vim server.
:silent :delete perfectly works when using interactively the code I'm testing, within a
:redir I end-up with
"nn fewer lines" that messes the test. While I could use
append() to add or change lines, there is no
deleteline() to silently remove lines.
Is there an option somewhere that I've missed, that completely silences these interactive commands?
