• VIM plugin to support plain-text/source-code headers

    From Digital Man@VERT to All on Sun Sep 15 17:01:43 2019
    Just wanted to plug this plug-in for VIM users: https://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=4122

    Yeah, VIM has its own special headers to control handling/display of tab chars, but I defined an editor-agnostic solution 20 years ago and it was great to find someone had written a VIM plugin to support them back in 2012.

    That's what those "@format.something" tags you see in many of my source files is all about.

    Programmers have written plugins for other editors too, but I've lost track of them over the years.

    Wow, you did this DM? (I keep forgetting if you're r.swindell, or that's the other guy) This is some pretty funny stuff:

    Needless to say, the party is a disaster: Bob's a vegetarian, Sally
    and Mike are lactose intolerant, and the DJ brings only Modern Dance
    music.

    Saving parties, one text formatting control scheme at a time...
