I'd like echo line from a hidden buffer without moving my cursor. Something like this:
:redir! > /tmp/myfile :1,$print 3 :redir end
(I want to inspect hidden buffers without changing the window layout or the cursor position.)
The above works great for the current buffer, but
Is there some vim command that prints the lines in a buffer?
(And FWIW, I can't use
:w because that also changes the names and numbers of the open buffers.)
