I wanted to be able to do quick pasties from vim so I installed codepad.vim to ~/.vim/plugin/
The docs at http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2298
said, "This requires +python support in vim."
When I'm editing a file and I do a :CPP I get the following:
E354: Invalid register name: '+'
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>
File "<string>", line 37, in codepadPaste
Press ENTER or type command to continue
Does this indicate that I have Python support compiled into my (stock) version of vim as distributed w/Slackware?
If not, what are some of the preferred ways to add python support to vim?
There's a tool called AAp on the vim.org website, there's downloading and compiling from source, like the website recommends as the best method, and then there's the Slackware logical extension of that, getting the sources for the package from the Slackware repo and running the SlackBuild.
The vim.SlackBuild Here
shows the following:
# I had been adding this, but got 100% complaints and 0% kudos:
So to me it appears that Python support is compiled in (I suppose I should recompile anyway to add the Ruby support too).
So what might I look at next? Basically, I'm just wanting to paste directly to a pastebin quickly from within vim.
