I've been working on some ports and vim plugins and came across the notion that having syntax highlighting for FreeBSD ports files, e.g. pkg-plist, might be useful. Firstly, I looked at vim.org and freebsd-questions and in /usr/local/share/vim/vim* for any existing material and didn't find anything.
My thoughts for filetype plugins for FreeBSD ports would be: * Create syntax files for things like: pkg-plist pkg-descr Makefile (when they're underneath a ports category) rc.conf sysctl.conf loader.conf * Write filetype plugins for ports You could use portlint as the compiler Quickfix could then help resolve problems Vimplate could be used for templating http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1808 Tag completion could help with variables like SITE_PERL * Write filetype plugin for rc.conf This could utilize omni completion for what's in /etc/default/rc.conf ... I notice that other distributions have done similar things. Has anyone done any work along these lines? -- Ian Tegebo _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
