win cmd.exe in Vim tab
I'm looking for Vim/gVim plugin to use Windows shell (cmd.exe) (executing commands, retrieving output) in separate tab/frame.
There are a lots of such solutions for Linux, but I'm unable to do it in Win...
Unlike Emacs, Vim is an editor, not an environment (thank Gawd :) and it is not (nor will ever be, according to what the developers have been saying for the past 20 years) designed to house a command prompt/shell in one of its buffers.
That being said, there are a couple of plugins that try to imitate that functionality. Some work better, some worse ... check'em out, and see what works best for you:
Just to add, I don't use any of the above - just found them on vim.org, so you're on your own from here on.
