README.md

A Vim plugin for executing operations on the files in the quickfix list.

If the current window has a local quickfix list (a location list), then it's used instead of the global quickfix list, otherwise the global quickfix list is used.

Qdo command

The plugin adds a :Qdo command, which executes a command once for each file in the quickfix list.

Usage example:

:GitGrep foo.*bar
:Qdo %s/foo.*bar/baz/g | update

This will replace text and save the buffers for each file found by GitGrep in the previous search.

Qargs command

The plugin also adds a :Qargs command, which populates the argument list from the files in the quickfix list. Each file is only added once, even if there are multiple lines for the same file in the quickfix list.

Usage example:

:args *.txt
:vimgrep /foo/g ##
:Qargs
:argdo %s/foo/bar/ge
:argdo update
