While the new console I/O buffering scheme for NppExec is much faster, it has a shortcoming when dealing with small status updates of I/O before completion of the launched external program.
I have a utility that takes about a minute to execute, and outputs short lines of progress text along the way. I think it is because the buffer size limit is not reached that the progress text does not appear until the external application terminates. It would be good to have a periodic timer that will flush the I/O buffer every 500ms or so in order to handle situations like this.
BTW, thanks DV for a great plugin!
