VCSCommand is a CVS/SVN/SVK/git integration plugin for Vim. It is useful for manipulating files controlled by CVS, SVN, SVK and git within VIM, including committing changes and performings diffs using the vimdiff system.
Vim is a text editor first released by Bram Moolenaar in 1991 for the Amiga computer. Vim was created as an extended version of the vi editor, with many additional features designed to be helpful in editing program source code; its full name is Vi IMproved.
While Vim is cross-platform, it is most popular on Unix-like operating systems.
Released under a software license compatible with the GNU General Public License, Vim is free and open source software. The program's license includes some charityware clauses.
Like vi, Vim's interface is based not on menus or icons but on commands given in a text user interface; its GUI mode, gVim, adds menus and toolbars for commonly used commands but the full functionality is still expressed through its command line mode.
For many users learning Vim may be difficult and slow initially, but once the basics are understood they progress quickly and editing becomes more efficient. To facilitate this, Vim has a built-in tutorial for beginners. There is also the Vim Users' Manual that details the basic and more advanced Vim features. This manual can be read from within Vim, or found online.
Vim also has a built-in help facility (using the :help command) that allows users to query and navigate through commands and features.
If you are upgrading from the cvscommand.vim script, remove the cvscommand.vim plugin and the cvscommand.txt help file from your system before installing this version. Also, read the CHANGES.txt file to learn about changes since cvscommand.vim.
For Vim 7:
Unzip the installation file.
Move the vcscommand.vim, vcscvs.vim, vcssvn.vim, vcssvk.vim, and vcsgit.vim scripts into your plugin directory.
Move the vcscommand.txt file into your doc directory and use the ':helptags' command to add it to your help directory (:help add-local-help).
Optionally, you can move the syntax scripts into your syntax directory to get syntax highlighting of annotate result buffers.
For vim 6.x:
Use a previous version of the script (1.76 of cvscommand.zip). This only supports CVS.
What's New in This Release:
· vcsgit: Set &ft correctly for VCSStatus buffers.
· vcsgit: Quote the blob name for VCSReview to handle paths with spaces.
