The terminal window manager Screen http://www.gnu.org/software/screen
offers the capability to copy and paste between windows.
In principle you can just do "C-a ]" (default) to paste the current Screen buffer into a vim buffer.
However this gives unexpected results when 'paste' is not set or in Vim's command-line.
This script provides convenience mappings and functions to get correct results.
As an additional feature the current Screen buffer is available
in any Vim instance, even those /outside/ the current screen session.
Many commands are autodetected and the behaviour adapts automatically [:help getcmdtype()].
Assuming the default mapleader "\" and screenpaste's default mappings you can type:
\p in Normal mode to put Screen buffer after cursor
\P in Normal mode to put Screen buffer before cursor
\gp in Normal mode to put Screen buffer after cursor and leave cursor after new text
\gP in Normal mode to put Screen buffer before cursor and leave cursor after new text
\p in Visual mode to replace selection with Screen buffer
\gp in Visual mode to replace selection with Screen buffer and leave cursor after new text
\p in Insert and Replace mode to insert Screen buffer
\p in Command-line-mode to insert Screen buffer
yanks Screen buffer [into register x]
puts Screen buffer after [line] (default: current line) using register [x]
puts Screen buffer before [line] (default: current line) using register [x]
:ScreenCmdlineConf search | sub | noesc
tells script how to convert Screen buffer in Command-line mode
Examples as typed with default keybindings:
echoes info on current Command-line mode behaviour
sets conversion of Screen buffer inserted in cmdline for search use
sets conversion of Screen buffer inserted in cmdline for substitution use
sets end-of-line only conversion for Screen buffer insertion in cmdline
Normal and Visual mode:
map <Leader>P <Plug>ScreenpastePut
Normal mode (put before cursor):
nmap <Leader>I <Plug>ScreenpastePutBefore
Insert and Command-line mode:
map! <F7> <Plug>ScreenpastePut
Change cmdline behaviour setting at startup:
let g:screen_clmode = "sub"
Specify Screen executable (default: 'screen'):
let g:screen_executable = "/usr/local/bin/screen"
Switch register used for Screen buffer (default: '"' for unnamed register):
let g:screen_register = "s"
Automatically select pasted text in Visual mode:
let g:screen_visualselect = 1
Wait longer for Screen to finish writing its exchange file:
let g:screen_wait = '500m'
