VIM – Specman indentation

For a long time I was using VIM’s Smartindent feature while typing, and was quite satisfied.

However, last week I’ve tried to read an annoying .e file with zigzag lines. Well, I thought, I’m using VI – the Super Editor. It must have a re-indent feature, doesn’t it?

Quick Googling gave me “gg=G” keystroke. It indeed re-indented the whole file, but it made some strange decisions…

It appears that every VIM “filetype” (i.e., supported language) should have supporting indentation file, and Specman doesn’t have such!

Well, now it has 🙂


Just put it under:


And reload VI.

Of course, feedback is welcome 🙂
