script type
This plugin uses the Tool Tip / Balloon functionality of Vim to display Tool
Tips for code. Currently only Tcl and AWK are supported.

Tool Tips are displayed for commands, variables and user defined procedures /
functions. The current buffer is checked for user defined procedures / functions when it
is written to disk.

More information and screenshots (in the wiki) at: https://github.com/LStinson/TagmaTips

Requires GVim 7 or later.

I welcome any and all feedback. Please contact me at LoranceStinson AT Gmail....
Please be sure to put TagmaTips in the subject so I know what you are emailing about.

Please note when updating the Vim Tool Tips Cache will be rebuilt.
This will cause a delay when loading a Vim file the first time.
