I now want to output these filenames into vi to do a multiple edit so I do -
./g | xargs vi
this does some strange stuff, vi behaves 'funny' like it lets me :n round the files but then when I go back with :e# they aren't there plus when I quit vi my terminal session is totally messed up with double-echoed prompts etc
I would put it in a script but this question is killing me. If you have a script, if you do a !script in vi it show the output on the screen. There has to be a vi command to take the output of a script/command and insert it at the end of the current cursor position. It seems like i have heard of it but can't locate it at the moment.
