in reply to Vim configs (slightly OT)

To catch my many typos and mismatched brackets (or any other syntax error), I add

set makeprg=$VIMRUNTIME/tools/efm_perl.pl\ -c\ %\ $* set errorformat=%f:%l:%m

To check the syntax, type :make This lets me use vim's quickfix mode to jump to directly to the next error with :cn or :cp to the previous error, among other things.
