lose.vim

I find Vim's find command incredibly useful. However, there are a few issues I have with it that are addressed in this plugin.

Lose presents :Lose which is functionally equivalent to vim's built-in find command with a few differences. First, if multiple files match the search, the user selects which one to open. Second, globbing is supported so *.txt is a valid query.

Just like Vim's built-in find command, the path option must be set by running set path=<path dir>. However, including ** to allow searching subdirectories is unnecessary for Lose.

Installation

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/marczych/vim-lose.git

Once help tags have been generated, you can view the manual with :help lose.
