*recover.vim* Show differences for recovered files Author: Christian Brabandt <firstname.lastname@example.org> Version: 0.11 Thu, 21 Oct 2010 22:57:10 +0200 Copyright: (c) 2009, 2010 by Christian Brabandt The VIM LICENSE applies to recoverPlugin.vim and recoverPlugin.txt (see |copyright|) except use recoverPlugin instead of "Vim". NO WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. USE AT-YOUR-OWN-RISK. ============================================================================== 1. Contents *recoverPlugin* 1. Contents.....................................: |recoverPlugin| 2. recover Manual...............................: |recover-manual| 3. recover Feedback.............................: |recover-feedback| 4. recover History..............................: |recover-history| ============================================================================== 2. RecoverPlugin Manual *recover-manual* Functionality When using |recovery|, it is hard to tell, what has been changed between the recovered file and the actual on disk version. The aim of this plugin is, to have an easy way to see differences, between the recovered files and the files stored on disk. Therefore this plugin sets up an auto command, that will create a diff buffer between the recovered file and the on-disk version of the same file. You can easily see, what has been changed and save your recovered work back to the file on disk. By default this plugin is enabled. To disable it, use > :RecoverPluginDisable < To enable this plugin again, use > :RecoverPluginEnable < When you open a file and vim detects, that an |swap-file| already exists for a buffer, the plugin will ask you, if you'd like to see a diff of both versions using |vimdiff|. In the dialog answer 'Yes' to open the file and display a diff version or 'No' to open the file normally. If you have said 'Yes', the plugin opens a new vertical splitt buffer. On the left side, you'll find the file as it is stored on disk and the right side will contain your recovered version of the file (using the found swap file). You can now use the |merge| commands to copy the contents to the buffer that holds your recovered version. If you are finished, you can close the diff version and close the window, by issuing |:diffoff!| and |:close| in the window, that contains the on-disk version of the file. Be sure to save the recovered version of you file and afterwards you can safely remove the swap file. *RecoverPluginFinish* *FinishRecovery* In the recovered window, the command > :FinishRecovery < deletes the swapfile closes the diff window and finishes everything up. Alternatively you can also use the command > :RecoveryPluginFinish < *RecoverPluginHelp* The command > :RecoverPluginHelp < show a small message, on what keys can be used to move to the next different region and how to merge the changes from one windo into the other. *RecoverPlugin-misc* If your Vim was built with |+balloon_eval|, recover.vim will also set up an balloon expression, that shows you, which buffer contains the recovered version of your file and which buffer contains the unmodified on-disk version of your file, if you move the mouse of the buffer. (See |balloon-eval|). If you have setup your 'statusline', recover.vim will also inject some info (which buffer contains the on-disk version and which buffer contains the modified, recovered version). Additionally the buffer that is read-only, will have a filename (|:f|) of something like 'original file (on disk-version)'. If you want to save that version, use |:saveas|. ============================================================================== 3. Plugin Feedback *recover-feedback* Feedback is always welcome. If you like the plugin, please rate it at the vim-page: http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=3068 You can also follow the development of the plugin at github: http://github.com/chrisbra/Recover.vim Please don't hesitate to report any bugs to the maintainer, mentioned in the third line of this document. ============================================================================== 4. recover History *recover-history* 0.12: (unreleased) : minor documentation update 0.11: Oct 19, 2010 : use confirm() instead of inputdialog() (suggested by D.Fishburn, thanks!) 0.9: Jun 02, 2010 : use feedkeys(...,'t') instead of feedkeys() (this works more reliable, although it pollutes the history), so delete those spurious history entries : |RecoverPluginHelp| shows a small help message, about diff commands (suggested by David Fishburn, thanks!) : |RecoverPluginFinish| is a shortcut for |FinishRecovery| 0.8: Jun 01, 2010 : make :FinishRecovery more robust 0.7: Jun 01, 2010 : |FinishRecovery| closes the diff-window and cleans everything up (suggestion by David Fishburn) : :DeleteSwapFile is not needed anymore 0.6: May 31, 2010 : |recover-feedback| : Ask to really open a diff buffer for a file (suggestion: David Fishburn, thanks!) : DeleteSwapFile to delete the swap file, that was used to create the diff buffer : change feedkeys(...,'t') to feedkeys('..') so that not every command appears in the history. 0.5: May 04, 2010 :0r command in recover plugin adds extra \n Patch by Sergey Khorev (Thanks!) : generate help file with 'et' set, so the README at github looks prettier 0.4: Apr 26, 2010 : handle Windows and Unix path differently : Code cleanup : Enabled |:GLVS| 0.3: Apr 20, 2010 : first public verion : put plugin on a public repository (http://github.com/chrisbra/Recover.vim) 0.2: Apr 18, 2010 : Internal version, some cleanup, bugfixes for windows 0.1: Apr 17, 2010 : Internal version, First working version, using simple commands ============================================================================== Modeline: vim:tw=78:ts=8:ft=help:et
