I want to have basically the same as
:read ![external command], but instead the external command I want to read the output from an internal command.
Shells echo / external command:
:read !echo 0x539 ->
Vims echo / internal command:
:read echo 0x539 ->
The second example will obviously fail, because thats not vim syntax. But is there an equivalent how I can archive this in vim/neovim? I know that you can generally output the result from vimscript commands in the
"= register. (In case you don't know, you can press
CTRL-R and then
= while being in insert mode to get into the expression register). But I don't know how to use
echo with it.
So if you have any ideas, I would be glad to hear them :)
