Since I seem to spend serious time trying to catch syntax errors (aka spelling mistakes) that will make for some time saving for me. I deleted a ';' in a regularly used file, and ran perl with the -c switch and I see it pops up syntax help, the same as when you run the file with an error. Could be useful, hey! I'll experiment with your mapping as given above. thanks Anne > > which as you might notice, saves the file (:w), then runs the perl > syntax checker (:! perl -c %). > The `<CR>' is the same as pressing Enter. > `:!' gives you access to the shell in which Vim is running, and `%' > represents the current file. > > So, whenever I press F8, the file is saved and the Perl syntax is > checked automatically, showing me any syntax error I might have in my > file. > > Try it, is very useful :) > _______________________________________________ Za-pm mailing list Zafirstname.lastname@example.org http://mail.pm.org/mailman/listinfo/za-pm posts also archived on Mail Archive http://email@example.com/
