Vim notes

Scripts

  • UpdateModDate.vim is a vim script I have written for updating the date-stamp of these pages automatically every time I save the files from within vim.

It searches for lines marked with %DATE_TAG% and updates the date on these lines every time the file is saved. Example:

   Last Modified: Tue Jun  2 04:44:58 UTC 2004      // %DATE_TAG%

Bugs

  • I've hit a bug in vim related to html highlighting that would cause get really really slow. This has already been fixed though. The interested might look at the detailed description.
