+# Vim Interaction #
+
+The plugin presents a function called `callvim` whose usage is:
+
+ usage: callvim [-b cmd] [-a cmd] [file ... fileN]
+
+ -b cmd Run this command in GVIM before editing the first file
+ -a cmd Run this command in GVIM after editing the first file
+ file The file to edit
+ ... fileN The other files to add to the argslist
+
+## Rationale ##
+
+The idea for this script is to give you some decent interaction with a running
+GVim session. Normally you'll be running around your filesystem doing any
+number of amazing things and you'll need to load some files into GVim for
+editing, inspecting, destruction, or other bits of mayhem. This script lets you
+do that.
+
+## Aliases ##
+
+There are a few aliases presented as well:
+
+* `v` A shorthand for `callvim`
+* `vvsp` Edits the passed in file but first makes a vertical split
+* `vhsp` Edits the passed in file but first makes a horizontal split
+
+## Examples ##
+
+This will load `/tmp/myfile.scala` into the running GVim session:
+
+ > v /tmp/myfile.scala
+
+This will load it after first doing a vertical split:
+
+ > vvsp /tmp/myfile.scala
+ or
+ > v -b':vsp' /tmp/myfile.scala
+
+This will load it after doing a horizontal split, then moving to the bottom of
+the file:
+
+ > vhsp -aG /tmp/myfile.scala
+ or
+ > v -b':sp' -aG /tmp/myfile.scala
+
+This will load the file and then copy the first line to the end (Why would you
+ever want to do this... I dunno):
+
+ > v -a':1t$' /tmp/myfile.scala
+
+And this will load all of the `*.txt` files into the args list:
+
+ > v *.txt
