I use the Command-T and NERDTree plugins and am wondering how to refresh the listings of these two plugins such that a file which has (just) been added to the directory also shows up in these file-browsing plugins.


I got the following from the Command-T documentation


|Instructs the plug-in to flush its path cache, causing the directory to be rescanned for new or deleted paths the next time the file window is shown. In addition, all configuration settings are re-evaluated, causing any changes made to settings via the |:let| command to be picked up.

For NERDTree, use R to refresh your current root or r to update a subdirectory. Take a look at the help from NERDTree (? in the NERDTree window), it has got some more useful shortcuts.
