Thank you. v9_8u8 compiles without (GCC 4.8.5) or with few (8.0.1) warnings and works as expected. "Mj*" or "Mk*" in command mode will show the difference in popup positions. The option can be set in .vilerc or at the ex-prompt. Looks fine to me, I'd love to have it in v9.8v (when xvile is ready, too).

I committed this, with some minor fixes, this week:


(I'm currently working on mawk, intending to finish some work on xvile before the next patch-update).

thanks (that's more complete than the usual request...)
I'll see how it works for me :-)

Popup buffers are rather a nice feature, but they tend to appear in unexpected places. With the cursor near the centre line of the window, I keep looking in the wrong place. We'd need an option (aka "mode") to make the position configurable. While I can (barely) come up with a hack to add a mode for that, I feel this would need to be implemented properly. Thank you.
