|Once this script is installed, attempting to edit a tarfile will present the
user with a list of files contained in the tar archive. By moving the cursor
over a filename and pressing ENTER, the contents of a file can be viewed in
read-only mode, in a new window. Unfortunately, write support for tarfile
components is not currently possible.
Requires GNU tar, or a tar implementation that supports the "P" (don't strip
out leading /'s from filenames), and "O" (extract files to standard output)
options. Additionally, gzip is required for handling *.tar.Z, *.tar.gz,
and *.tgz compressed tarfiles, and bzip2 is required for handling *.tar.bz2
compressed tarfiles. A unix-like operating system is probably also required.
|Place this file, tar.vim, in your $HOME/.vim/plugin directory, and
either restart vim, or execute ":source $HOME/.vim/plugin/tar.vim"
