Vim Syntax Highlighting

From ABL
Jump to: navigation, search

Copy the below file into a file called abl.vim in your syntax folder (usually in $VIM/syntax or $VIM/vim70/syntax)

Editing your filetype.vim file (usually in $VIM) to include "au BufNewFile,BufRead *.abl setf abl"

Yay syntax highlighting!

"Vim syntax file
" Language: 	ABL

" Quit when a syntax file was already loaded
if !exists("main_syntax")
  if version < 600
    syntax clear
  elseif exists("b:current_syntax")
  " we define it here so that included files can test for it
  let main_syntax='java'

"only use vim > 6.0
