What is this?
This is an extremely basic VIM plugin I wrote that allows you to jump back to the most recent tab you were in while using GVim/MacVim etc. I wrote it because I'd never written a VIM plugin before and I wanted to learn how. I also wanted to experiment with the Ruby bindings for vimscript.
While the plugin is fully functional I wouldn't recomend using it as you can accomplish what it does with 2 or 3 lines in your vimrc.
Eventually I hope to expand this into a fully functional tab management plugin once I have the time.
Place jumpback.vim in the plugin directory of your .vim folder. If you use Pathogen (which I highly recomend) put it in jumpback/plugin in your bundles folder
This will add a new command :Jumpback which will switch back to the tab you were most recently working in. You can bind it to any key you'd like.
