      Hi, all.

      Is there a way to write out to file or buffer the error message that
      comes up bottom left above the command line when one of the installed
      plugins throws an error?


      You can always see the errors later with:
      :messages

      And due to that, you could do something like this:

      :redir @a
      :messages
      :redir END

      That will put that content (all messages, not just errors) into your "a register.
      So you can paste it into a buffer with "ap.

      :redir offers other features, you can redirect to a file as well.
      :redir > myfile.txt

      :h :redir

      You can also view the messages highlight them with your mouse and hit CTRL-Y to yank them into the system clipboard.

      HTH,
      David
