Re: svn/git/etc blame compatible syntax highlighting



I re-opened this >60 days closed thread because i just discovered it

Sorry to be a little bit late on this but I was just in the same
position as Richard. I already used to use vcscommand and this new
options looks terrific. The only pb i encountered was (for SVN at
least, i didn't check on other vcs') when user's name is longer than

 1      foo  #!/bin/bash
 2      bar  # ...
 3  rogerthekingofnames #
 1      foo ls
 1      foo

After investingating a little biti think  that culprit is
   execute "normal 0zR\<c-v>G/" . splitRegex . "/e\<cr>d"

because the blockwise-visual selects only until ' 1    foo' hence,
rogerthekingofnames is cut.
I must admit i did not understand well the above command (especially
the 0zR) and did not find an 'easy' (or at least in my vim skills)

Anyway this options is a great idea and as i'm really beginning to use
svn i think that this split-blame is a must-have even with this little
pb (and i've been a little bit surprised that googling returns so few
entries, hopefully this thread was amongst them).

Many thanks,


PS: an other great idea could be to 'annotate' current code (i.e. just
opening a 'vsplit' for annotate stuff) and for 'locally  modified'
stuff to put special comment, but i must admit it might be a different
approach that the current vcscommands (i.e. first issue a diff to see
which lines are 'originals',  modified, removed, added to after issue
the correct 'annotate').
