I'd like to echo a custom message upon startup, based on whether or not certain startup functions were successful. I tried this in my
echo 'test' "All my settings ...
I'd like vim to echo a message as if I had just typed
from the command line after opening vim, but instead I get this obnoxious dialog box that comes up before my vim windows has even opened. I also tried
exe 'echo "test"'
silent echo 'test'
but neither of these worked.
