DESCRIPTION                                               *hier-description*

Highlight quickfix errors and location list entries in buffer. This
plugin was designed to support the editqf vim script (vimscript#3557)
but it also works very well stand alone.

This script can be downloaded from vimscript#3564. The latest
development version is available at https://github.com/jceb/vim-hier.

USAGE                                                           *hier-usage*

The following commands are provided:
:HierStart " enable hier highlighting
:HierStop " disable hier highlighting
:HierUpdate " update error highlighting for current buffer
:HierClear " remove highlighting - it will be displayed again when :HierUpdate is called

CUSTOMIZATION                                           *hier-customization*

The highlight group can be customized by setting the following variables.
Setting a variable to the string "" will disable highlighting of that
group. Every type can be highlighted differently (error, warning, info):
let g:hier_highlight_group_qf   = 'SpellBad'
let g:hier_highlight_group_qfw  = 'SpellLocal'
let g:hier_highlight_group_qfi  = 'SpellRare'

let g:hier_highlight_group_loc  = 'SpellBad'
let g:hier_highlight_group_locw = 'SpellLocal'
let g:hier_highlight_group_loci = 'SpellRare'

Enable/disable highlighting highlighting by default:
let g:hier_enabled              = 1
