This command is a very simple replacement for the [:make][make] command that does not pop up a console window on Windows. It doesn't come with all of the bells and whistles that Vim's built-in make command does but it should work.
+Because Vim's [v:shell_error][shell_error] variable is read only (which means it cannot be set by a Vim plug-in) the vim-shell plug-in defines its own variable with the exit code of the `make` process executed by `:MakeWithShell`.
