script type
" Description: This plugin defines a 'Redir' command that takes a register
" and one or more {bar} separated commands. This command will execute
" these commands and collect their output into the specified register.
" The resulting register could than be inserted anywhere with a :put
" The register must always be specified, and is the first character
" of the command argument. The remainder of the argument is the command
" to be captured. This command may be separated from the register with
" a space. Several commands can be specified, but have to be separated
" with a bar:
" :Redir {reg} {cmd} [ | {cmd} [ | {cmd} ... ] ]
" Examples:
" 1) Simple case of one command (e.g. :version) to be captured into
"    register v
"     :Redir vversion
" or
"     :Redir v version
" 2) Example of two commands (ls and set) to be collected into
" register p
"     :Redir p ls | set
" or
"     :Redir pls|set
" 3) Example of a command (g/exe) to be appended to register x
"     :Redir Xg/exe
" or
"     :Redir X g/exe
install details
" Installation: Just unzip and copy this file into your ~/vim/plugin
" or corresponding directory
