A very nice feature of VIM is the ‘gf’ command (go to file), which will open the file under cursor.
However, if there is a line like this:
“my_file.e” won’t be opened, because vim looks for “my_file”.
This can be easily solved, by adding this to your .vimrc
And to the more interesting part…
Q: If “my_file.e” isn’t located in the current directory, how will VIM find it?
A: The same way Specman does. With ‘specman_path’!
Adding this snippet to your .vimrc will do the trick 🙂
let &path = system(“echo $SPECMAN_PATH | sed ‘s/:/,/g'”)
if strlen(&path) == 0
let &path = “.”
