script type
This plugin maps (by default) <S-CR> to add a filetype's provided "line ending"
to the end of the current line if it is not already present. For instance, a ';'
would be added to the end of a line of JavaScript source.

This is similar to a feature provided by TextMate, mapped to
Command-Option-Return in that application.


Somewhere in your .vimrc (or equivalent), provide a global dict mapping filetype
names to line endings, like so:

let g:Endlines = {
  'erlang': '.',
  'java': ';',
  'javascript': ';',
  'ocaml': ';;',
  'perl': ';',
  'php': ';',
  'python': ':',
  'sml': ';'

Mappings can also be a list of patterns that will be tried in order. In the
following example, a " ->" is appended if the line starts with no whitespace
and ends with a ")", and a "," is appended if the line ends with

let g:Endlines = {
      'erlang':     [
        \['^\S.*)$', ' ->'],
        \['\S$', ',']]

By default, <S-CR> is mapped in both insert and normal mode. In insert mode, a
new line is added as well.

Global Options:

g:EndlineMapping ('<S-CR>'): The default endline mapping.
g:EndlineInsertMapping (g:EndlineMapping): The insert mode mapping.
g:EndlineNormalMapping (g:EndlineMapping): The normal mode mapping.
g:EndlineInsert (1): 0 to disable the insert mode mapping.
g:EndlineNormal (1): 0 to disable the normal mode mapping.
g:Endlines ({}): See "Usage"
