Replacing the pager inside vim


Note: Not using vim as a pager. That's covered extensively on the Internet.

When you press Tab to complete various kinds of stuff inside vim/gvim, it brings up a fairly basic pager. For example, enter :help taTab. You get a list of matching items, with the pager prompt like this:

-- More -- SPACE/d/j: screen/page/line down, b/u/k: up, q:quit

How do I replace this pager with something a bit more sophisticated?

Best Answer

That pager is built-in: you can disable it with set nomore but you can't replace it with something else.

You'd better read :h pager and get comfortable with the mappings.

Also, what sophistication do you have in mind?
