Screen Send Delay

I use screen with Vim to send text to REPLs. By default screen will use a delay to wait for text arriving via the send command, but this can be annoying when you want to send functions or commands over and see them executed right away.

You can reduce the time screen waits for more data by adding the following to your ~/.screenrc

msgwait 0
msgminwait 0

Then when you send stuff over it'll be pasted into the screen session right away.
