I have been trying the https://github.com/ngemily/vim-vp4 plugin for integrating Perforce version control commands into Vim.
Vp4Diff command fails for me. I tracked it down to a step where a
system(cmd) function was being called when
cmd = "p4 fstat-T headrev <filename>#have".
The problem is actually not caused by Perforce. I find that any cmd containing a
# character will fail.
:call system('touch #this')
...but I get an error:
E484: Can't open file /tmp/vx0yoZZ/1
I'm using Vim 8.2.1001. This happens for both tcsh shell and bash. It also happens when running
I'm disapointed the error message wasn't "U Can't Touch #This"
