This is the aggregation of all the various Perl-related syntax and helper files for Perl 5 and Perl 6.
You can install vim-perl using
- Pathogen and git submodules
They were all tested and work: please read the related documentation on the related sites.
The legacy method is to install just do a "make install" and you'll get the .vim files all installed in your ~/.vim directory.
Any bug reports/feature requests/patches should be directed to the vim-perl group.
When reporting bugs in the highlighting of items, please include an example file as well as a screenshot demonstrating the problem.
Curly braces inside of regexes/strings are considered when I use %
(See also GH #86)
Vim itself only considers double quotes in this scenario; the matchit plugin, however, can deal with this scenario and vim-perl's files are set up to work with it should you choose to use it.
Can you add highlighting for Moose, Try::Tiny, Test::More, etc, keywords?
We have syntax "extensions" under the contrib directory; you can find custom highlighting for these sorts of things there.
If you would like to contribute to vim-perl (which would be greatly appreciated!), you may find
verify-corpus.pl scripts of use. What I do is drop the sources
Regexp::Debugger in the corpus directory and use the scripts
to make sure my changes don't cause regressions in highlighting and folding.
