Changes to minibufexpl.vim #19

wants to merge 4 commits into from

2 participants



I made the changes in the pull request to support files with "~" that were not working well.

Also some modifications to use the plugin with VIM 7.0 that I have in some computers where I work.




Le sigh. Open source software loves you too.

@futuro futuro Fixed incompatibility with tilde characters in filenames
When trying to open files that have a tilde in the name, the search
function in <SID>StartExplorer (roughly line 120 of the function)
interprets the tilde character as a search special character,
specifically matching the last given substitute string (:h /~). Since
this is probably not what was desired when expanding the buffer name, I
have pulled the code from [here], specifically for escaping the tilde
character. I'm not certain why this bit hasn't been pulled, since there
is a pull [request] for it, but it's possible it's because the requester
had a [commit] that was more or less a complete deletion of the plugin.

So anyways, I'm hoping that this request will be pulled, because I
really enjoy this plugin and I want it to work well with the Man plugin
(which names buffers as "<man page name>.~"). The code I pulled was
written by "rmercado", or r_mercado at o2 dot co dot uk, but I haven't
included any of the work that makes MiniBufExplorer work with vim 7.0,
since that's outside the scope of my use.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
