2. Commands |sniff-commands|
3. Compiling Vim with SNiFF+ interface |sniff-compiling| {Vi does not have any of these commands} The SNiFF+ interface only works, when Vim was compiled with the |+sniff|
feature. ============================================================================== 1. Introduction *sniff-intro* The following features for the use with SNiFF+ are available: * Vim can be used for all editing requests * SNiFF+ recognizes and updates all browsers when a file is saved in Vim * SNiFF+ commands can be issued directly from Vim How to use Vim with SNiFF+ 1. Make sure SNiFF+ is running. 2. In the Editor view of the Preferences dialog set the Field named 'External Editor' to 'Emacs/Vim'. 4. Start Vim 5. Connect to SNiFF+ (:sniff connect) Once a connection is established, SNiFF+ uses Vim for all requests to show or
edit source code. On the other hand, you can send queries to SNiFF+ with the
:sniff command. ============================================================================== 2. Commands *sniff-commands* *:sniff* *:sni*
:sni[ff] request [symbol] Send request to sniff with optional symbol. {not in Vi}
:sni[ff] Display all possible requests and the connection status Most requests require a symbol (identifier) as parameter. If it is omitted,
Vim will use the current word under the cursor.
The available requests are listed below: request mapping        description
