Patch: Quickstart automatically detects changes to vimrc/gvimrc
I implemented a patch that will automatically rebuild the preload
cache if the user has modified their vimrc/gvimrc files. It is my
hope that in 99% of the cases this will make the "Force New Window"
menu entry redundant. The effect of this patch is that you can modify
your rc-files, save, Cmd-n, and immediately see the changes you made
(to make the quickstart feature more transparent). It has the
negative side-effect that the first window opened after an rc-file has
been modified will not open instantaneously.
This patch does not cover cases where the vimrc/gvimrc files sources
external files and these are modified, nor does it monitor changes to
the ~/.vim folder in any way. I'm not sure how much of a problem this
is. (It _does_ work even if you name your rc-files _vimrc/_gvimrc
instead of .vimrc/.gvimrc.)
The attached patch should be applied AFTER the one I sent out in my
gmn: Since you seem most actively interested in this feature I ask you
to try this patch out and tell me what you think. (Of course, I
appreciate feedback from anybody. ;-)
