Custom syntax in VIM

From XDSwiki

In VIM, you can define a custom syntax to display comments differently from XDS parameters. This aids legibility.

  • put
syntax match XDS_Comment /!.*$/
into ~/.vim/syntax/inp.vim (create file if it doesn't exist)
  • put
autocmd BufRead,BufNewFile *.INP set filetype=inp
into ~/.vim/ftdetect/inp.vim (create file if it doesn't exist)
  • put
highlight def link XDS_Comment Comment
into ~/.vimrc (create file if it doesn't exist)
