vim-fetch enables Vim to process line and column jump specifications in file paths as found in stack traces and similar output. When asked to open such a file, Vim with vim-fetch will jump to the specified line (and column, if given) instead of displaying an empty, new file.

If you have wished Vim would understand stack trace formats when loading files without making you jump through Quickfix hoops, vim-fetch is for you.
