Today I Learned

A Hashrocket project

Open the Vim Quickfix

Today I learned a new Vim command, :copen or :cope. The headline for this command is that it “open[s] a window to show the current list of errors”. The side benefit is that if you already have quickfix window in your buffers, like you would after greping the codebase, it will open or reopen that quickfix buffer.

See :help :copen for more info.
