comment Command output redirection to vim not working on OS X
Reading through that whole page, I got to a section where it mentioned that forking was non-standard and that to fork, one should provide the whole path to binary. Doing that, piping a command's output to vim worked fine. So I figured I'd just make an alias for vim that would provide the whole path, and that's when I noticed: sometime, years ago, I had already created an alias for vim: alias vim='export TERM=xterm-color; vim'. I fixed this to alias vim='TERM=xterm-color vim' and now it works just as it should. Thanks for indirectly leading me to the solution :-).
