script type
The function RunVimTmuxCommand(command) is the core of Vimux. It will
create a split pane in the current window and run the passed command in it.

    :call RunVimTmuxCommand("ls")

This will run the command in a split pane without losing focus of vim. If the
command takes a long time to return you can continue to use vim while the
process finishes and will see the output in the pane when it's finished. Check
out http://github.com/benmills/vimux for more information and updates.
install details
Move plugin/vimux.vim from the unachieved folder into ~/.vim/plugin/ or if you use pathogen you can move the unachieved folder into ~/.vim/bundle.

Once you have the vimux installed as a vim plugin you should be able to start vim and run :PromptVimTmuxCommand. If vimux was installed correctly you should see Command? You can then type any command to be executed and watch vimux create a pane for you.
