AsyncCommand allows you to execute shell commands without waiting for them to complete. When the application terminates, its output can be loaded into a vim buffer. AsyncCommand is written to be compatible with Windows and Linux (tested on Win7 and Ubuntu 11.10).
Currently three types of commands are supported:
- grep for files and load results in quickfix
- run any program and load results in a split
- AsyncCscopeFindSymbol, AsyncCscopeFindCalls, AsyncCscopeFindX
- cscope commands
- run your makeprg with input arguments and load the results in quickfix
