I know that the quickfix list is very useful for the edit-compile-edit cycle. I like the fact that we can jump directly to an error from it.
Actually I am trying to understand the way I can parse a given error message with the errorformat built-in variable
I have some error messages put in some training files and I want to import them into the quickfix list to test my regexp set in my
efm variable (e.g.
set efm=%C %.%#...).
I know that I can open an error message in a file with:
vim -q errorfile
But this way, I need to quit vim and open the desired file (I can lose my values set on the fly).
Is there a way to open the file in the quickfix list without leaving vim?
