Rather than continuing to edit this page, I have started storing my .vimrc file and vim plugins at www.github.com/stkerr/Config-Files
I really like the Vim editor and this page is a collection of some of the neat stuff I have found.
Improves coloring of text. Set based on terminal
Adds a taglist to the side of supported file types. Requires ctypes.
Does syntax checking for supported filetypes. Requires pathogen.
Use :tabe, :tabn, :tabp to create and move between tabs in vim. Consider mapping these shortcuts to function keys for improved productivity.
Use :sp and :vsp to split the window into multiple buffers. Navigate with ctrl+[hjkl]
Can also split horizontall and vertically with ctrl+w,[sv], respectively.
Use ctrl+w,w to switch among open buffers.
