gmax++. Excellent article! I've been delving into so many features of vim I don't think I'll ever be able to use another editor. Exporting to syntax-highlighted, numbered HTML is cool. I've also never seen the 'showmatch' option, but always wanted it!

I just have one question for you, which may be more of a ctags question--I don't know. Say you have some perl...
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use Business::CreditCard qw(); Business::CreditCard::validate('4111111111111111') or die "The credit card number appears to be invalid\n";
When I run on this, it just returns "No tags found.". Isn't the function call a tag? I would expect it to make a tags file with a hyperlink to Business::CreditCard that points straight to the line where validate() is defined. Is this possible? I would so love to know the answer to this riddle. If I could do this it would be incredibly easy to navigate my perl code.
