running tools or compilers

The well known standard way is something like this:

compiler java
:set makeprg=javac
:make %

great: you can cancel compilation by pressing ctrl-c. Bad: You see all lines scroll by (which may even be slow).

There are a lot of additional plugins which can also run compilers.


Implements running compiler for many languages and let's you bind this to a key or the buf write event


nice for simple scripts, but runs the interpreter for some languages :(


on there are many more solutions
