The marks in
vim knows the deletion and insertion of lines before it and their positions will keep updated. Is there a way to achieve these pragmatically?
I am running an async task which is supposed to update the current line when the task finishes. Here the current line means the cursor line at the time the task is launched. After launching it, I may need to move the cursor around; make modifications to the buffer. How can I get the correct position when the task finishes without using a mark? If marks are used, they may be accidentally reset by user or by other third party plugins.
Given the text:
line1 line2 fix me please line4 line5
Assume my cursor is now at line 3, I am going to run
:Fixme which is to replace
fix me please with
line3 but at a much later time.
If during this waiting period, I delete
line1 or inserte more lines before line 3, I hope
:Fixme is aware of this change and still updates the line
fix me please. How to achieve this?
