I used Cygwin perl and cpan to download, compile and test a working
ack, struggling with a clean working model.
Primarily using win32 Vim, it seems like I can only utilize the Cygwin
ack if I change from
Unfortunately, this breaks other useful tools within Vim. I have loaded the plugin ack.vim which seems promising, but it encounters an error after search execution and fails to render in quickfix. I have read many posts but haven't found a palatable implementation.
What is the best mechanism for executing an external
ack in Cygwin from win32 Vim?
Perhaps I should look further at the Ack.vim implementation? Maybe just something as simple as quickly switching between shell implementations without Vim restart?
