Do you mean by this that you think vim lacks the ability to run a shell? My vim lets me do this! Just prefix the command with :!.

That's not what I meant. Please, excuse my vagueness and let me reformulate.

My grief against vim is that one can't run a process (like a shell) and interact with it within a vim buffer so that you can (for example) record the session. Such feature is available with emacs. See its shell-mode for example.

Simply starting a shell from vim has the additional inconvenience that you can easily stack a vim on top a shell on top a vim... I know that some shells have environment variables like SHLVL that you can manage to display as part of the prompt so that you can see when you stack stuff like that. But that is not addressing the real problem: the shell session should be available as a vim buffer.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
