script type
The self.vim library provides a base Object Prototype for a VimScript object
hierarchy which includes
method and data inheritance. Method dispatch is static rather than dynamic - a
function calling limitation. Included are a couple of limited test scripts.

Source can be found at: https://github.com/megaannum/self
Self tutorial:

The Self library is currently being used in the following scripts:
Forms Library
Colorschemer utility
Scalacommenter utility
Vimside, Vim Scala IDE
install details
Self.vim is a library plugin and can be placed in the autoload directory.
Intalling with vim-addon-manager (VAM)

For more information about vim-addon-manager, see
[vim-addon-manager](https://github.com/MarcWeber/vim-addon-manager) and
[Vim-addon-manager getting

In your .vimrc, add self as shown below:

    fun SetupVAM()
      let g:vim_addon_manager = {}
      let g:vim_addon_manager.plugin_sources = {}
      let g:vim_addon_manager.plugin_sources['self'] = {'type': 'git', 'url':

      let plugins = [
        \ 'self'
        \ ]

      call vam#ActivateAddons(plugins,{'auto_install' : 0})
    call SetupVAM()

Now start Vim. You will be asked by vim-addon-manager
if you would like to download and install the self plugin (no dependencies).

Installing with pathogen
  I do not use pathogen. An example usage would be welcome.
