Vim syntax highlighting for Go (http://golang.org)
==================================================
To install automatic syntax highlighting for GO programs:
1. Copy or link the filetype detection script to the ftdetect directory
underneath your vim runtime directory (normally $HOME/.vim/ftdetect)
2. Copy or link syntax/go.vim to the syntax directory underneath your vim
runtime directory (normally $HOME/.vim/syntax). Linking this file rather
than just copying it will ensure any changes are automatically reflected
in your syntax highlighting.
3. Add the following line to your .vimrc file (normally $HOME/.vimrc):
syntax on
In a typical unix environment you might accomplish this using the following
commands:
mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/ftdetect
mkdir -p $HOME/.vim/syntax
ln -s $GOROOT/misc/vim/ftdetect/gofiletype.vim $HOME/.vim/ftdetect/
ln -s $GOROOT/misc/vim/syntax/go.vim $HOME/.vim/syntax
echo "syntax on" >> $HOME/.vimrc
Vim filetype plugins for Go
===========================
To install one of the available filetype plugins for Go:
1. Same as 1 above.
2. Copy or link one or more plugins from ftplugin/go/*.vim to the
Go-specific ftplugin directory underneath your vim runtime directory
(normally $HOME/.vim/ftplugin/go/*.vim).
3. Add the following line to your .vimrc file (normally $HOME/.vimrc):
filetype plugin on
