I want to use a highlighter mode on my text file, example:
:color_region bold line1 col1 line2 col2
:color_region bold 5 5 6 6
:color_region underline 5 5 6 6
I couldn't do this in vim. Vim only has syntax coloring with regexps.
Emacs has functions to apply properties to text blocks, and I was hoping
vim has something comparable.
From :help /ordinary-atom
Overview of ordinary atoms. */ordinary-atom*
More explanation and examples below, follow the links.
|/\%l| \%23l \%23l in line 23 |/zero-width|
|/\%c| \%23c \%23c in column 23 |/zero-width|
|/\%v| \%23v \%23v in virtual column 23 |/zero-width|
Maybe this regexp atoms could be used to simulate text blocks from emacs?
