    gvim open question

    I have so far been unable to find an answer to this problem in documentation or this board.

    In gvim, I like to have foo.h split vertically with foo.cpp . I can imagine a shell script (or even a small c program) doing this for me, with every matching pair in a directory split vertically, in their own tab. However, I don't know how to do it. It seems -O opens vertically split, and -p opens in separate tabs, but I can't see how to group them.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks.

    I do that a lot too, but I prefer a horizontal split.

    You want to source a vim script. I sometimes put these in build directories so it's included when I tarball or git the project. Eg:

    :e /home/C++/project/main.cpp
    :split /home/C++/project/main.h
    :tabnew /home/C++/project/someclass.cpp
    :split /home/C++/project/someclass.h
    Save that as "/home/C++/project/VIM" or something. Then we you want to work on it, use this in command mode:

    :source /home/C++/project/VIM

    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
