Not a bad little script, but you can do the same thing with:

:silent bufdo vimgrepadd /<REGEX>/ %

of course the "silent" is optional:

:bufdo vimgrepadd /<REGEX>/ %

This command loops through all of the buffers and greps the current buffer for the regex and appends the results to the quickfix list. You can't use vimgrep instead of vimgrepadd because each buffer will overwrite the quickfix from the previous buffer. --jearsh
