When I use Vim, sometimes when I make an edit, I want to test if it works by running some command. (Something like gcc % && ./a.out).

So I made a simple Vim script to help:

To use it, first, press <Leader>s. It will ask for a command, in which you type the command you wish to run.

Then, when you want to run the configured command, just press <Leader>r.
