When I do :cw, a quickfix window opens with a 10-line height, even when the number of errors is 1 or 2. I think it's a waste of window space.
So I wrote the following code in my vimrc. With it, a quickfix window height is automatically adjusted to fit its contents (maximum 10 lines).
au FileType qf call AdjustWindowHeight(3, 10) function! AdjustWindowHeight(minheight, maxheight) exe max([min([line("$"), a:maxheight]), a:minheight]) . "wincmd _" endfunction
Of course, this function can be applied to other windows besides the quickfix window.
If you feel it's too tight, you may want to replace line("$") with line("$")+1.
