When you run the :make command in Vim, the output will be displayed page by page as if it
was piped to more. I want to disable this. It is irritating to keep pressing the space bar repeatedly especially if the output is very large.
How do I do this?


I don't observe this behavior, but the corresponding Vim option is:

:set nomore

When on, listings pause when the whole screen is filled. You will get the |more-prompt|. When this option is off there are no pauses, the listing continues until finished.

Also, check your 'makeprg' and ensure that it doesn't contain a pager.

  • I retract my comment(it suppresses the output), yours rules. Alas! the prompts are nomore. ;) – Segfault Aug 9 '13 at 21:46
