I want to use Vim because of its ability to convert code to color-highlighted HTML. I have compiled Vim and tested this with other code (ex: C), however I cannot get Vim to recognise the bacon.vim file.
The syntax files are in /usr/share/vim/syntax, and if I put bacon.vim into there, it is ignored.
I can manually choose Qbasic highlighting and conversion to HTML works nicely.
Do you know what I need to do to get Vim to recognise and use the bacon.vim file?
The menu does have a feature to list all available syntax files, and bacon is not listed.
Note that I am totally new to Vim/vi. It was daunting at first, but I managed to get it running with a nice GTK gui.
Thanks again. I wanted to start work again on my BaCon web pages, with some simple tutorials. Previously I have been using Nicoedit (which uses gtksourceview) and taking snapshots of the screen to get color-highlighted-code images for my tutorials -- not very satisfactory.
Now, I need to put this Vim together as a PET package so that other Puppy Linux users can do this too.
