|This plug-in has been abandoned! Most of its code has been absorbed into my miscellaneous scripts for Vim (see https://github.com/xolox/vim-misc) while the user interface part is still found in the shell plug-in (vimscript #3123). I will no longer maintain the "Open associated programs" plug-in since I'm shifting focus to the miscellaneous scripts (because they're included in all of my Vim plug-ins and since I need the "open associated programs" functionality in several of my plug-ins, this makes most sense).
This plug-in knows how to open files, directories, URLs and e-mail addresses from inside Vim using the associated programs. It should work on Windows, Mac OS X and most Linux installations. For more information about the plug-in please refer to its homepage or the project page on GitHub:
If you have questions, bug reports, suggestions, etc. the author can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you like this plug-in please vote for it below!
|Unzip the most recent ZIP archive file (see below) inside your Vim profile directory (usually this is "~/.vim" on UNIX and "%USERPROFILE%\vimfiles" on Windows), restart Vim and execute the command ":helptags ~/.vim/doc" (use ":helptags ~\vimfiles\doc" instead on Windows).
Note that on Windows a command prompt window pops up when either of the functions is called. If this bothers you then you can install my shell.vim plug-in (see vimscript #3123) which includes a DLL that works around this issue. Once you’ve installed both plug-ins it should work out of the box!
