Problems with multi-line echo on autocommand
Normally, when I ask vim to echo multiple lines of text (as in echo
"Test 1"|echo "Test 2"|echo "Test 3"|echo "Test 4"), it shows all of
them, and asks me to press enter to continue. I've been working on a
plugin in which I want vim to echo multiple lines of text in this
fashion under certain circumstances when an autocommand event is
triggered. However, when I do this, I find that vim only shows the
last line of text.
For instance, if I enter:
autocmd CursorMoved * echo "Test 1"|echo "Test 2"|echo "Test 3"|echo "Test 4"
And then move my cursor, vim displays "Test 4". Is there any way
around this? (I am using vim 7.3).
