Editing CL source members with Vim

Back in October I mentioned that I had started assembling a set of Vim syntax files, starting with RPG. I have now added the CLP (and CLLE) syntax files and you can find the full set over here.

To give credit where it’s due, I found these via Martin Rowe although the comments at the top of the file indicates that it was originally built by Thomas Geulig. Either way, a bit of maintenance is well overdue and, being a Vim user, it’s in my interest to see it done.

With the arrival of fully free RPG, there really is no excuse to stick with SEU and the productivity gains you will see from using a proper text editor are phenomenal. I am aware that Vim comes with a bit of a learning curve and probably isn’t for everyone, but if you are still using SEU you really should be looking for an alternative.
