.vimrc I added a hook which automates entering the quickfix after
autocmd QuickFixCmdPost [^l]* nested cwindow 20
Another thing I care about but can't achieve is automation of applying highlight/color of all found occurrences while being in the quickfix. What I observed, it's really easy to do manually:
by re-typing the same pattern which went to the
:grep we will get all occurrences highlighted in all of the files referenced by the quickfix.
Is it possible to program it so that vim will know the
grep's matches (or at least the pattern passed) and automatically perform the
/pattern search command after
:cwindow is executed - or perform any other method to apply that highlight?
Assuming we can deliver a custom command for
command! -nargs=+ G execute "grep -rIn <args> ."
now the pattern itself is provided by the means of a custom command which might be helpful(?).
I admit I'm not a good vim programmer. Can it all be somehow chained together (as another
function and preserving the effect of
cwindow hook) to get that highlight to be applied?
