script type
Two emacs verilog-mode functions are mapped.
\a expands all the verilog-mode autos (similar to C-c C-a in emacs).
\d collapses all the verilog-mode autos (similar to C-c C-d in emacs).

Previously if I wanted to update verilog-mode autos, I would
   save and quit vim
   fire up emacs
   do the auto commands
   save and close emacs
   fire up vim.
And in doing so, I would lose all the edit history in vim.
With this I can just type \a and keep all the previous edit history for undos.

This is my first attempt at writing a vim plugin. Code should be simple enough for an average Verilog user to take and fix/enhance according to needs. Doing :he plugin, :he write-plugin, or :he plugin-details should reveal how simple this really is.
install details
Download this script and put it in your ~/.vim/ftplugin/ directory, creating the directories if necessary.

You need to get the verilog-mode.el file from the http://www.verilog.com/verilog-mode.html site.
You can follow the installation instruction there, but to use it with this script all you need to do is place the uncompressed file in your ~/elisp directory. You can also place the file in other locations as long as you change the path to the file in this script.
