How can I close all buffers but one in vim? I'm looking for an :only command, but for buffers. I've had trouble finding this using :help and :helpgrep, does anyone know if this exists? I know you can close multiple buffers with :bd some# other# etc.., but that's a bit slow

hmm, that looks alright, but doesn't seem to load with vim-unbundle, so I need to :source it manually. Do you know why? – Josh Jun 7 '12 at 15:02
I've never used unbundle so I'm not sure. But from what I read in the link you provided, unbundle looks for bundle directories. BufOnly is just a single .vim file. So :source it or just download it to your plugins directory. – embedded.kyle Jun 7 '12 at 17:10
