If not, what is the mechanism?
If so: Suppose a user starts from Outlook and gets into vim. What
is outlook doing while the user is editing in Vim? Is it in an
infinite loop waiting for a "quit" message from Vim to then go and
read the temporary file?
create temporary file
launch vim on temporary file
Is there a quit message from vim?
If so, exit while loop
read temporary file
If outlook is not in such a while loop, how exactly does it know
when it is OK to read the temporary file?
If it is in such a while loop, have you noticed what happens to
the CPU usage and to Outlook interaction while vim is open with
the temporary file?
