script type
This plugin provides a hotkey to go up by one level
when editing a file path on the vim command line.

Suppose you edit a file system path in the command line
where | represents the position of the cursor

:e ~/foo/bar/foo-bar/|barbar

Then pressing the plugin hotkey will result in

:e ~/foo/bar/|barbar

In contrast you would have to press <c-w> four times to
delete '/', 'bar', '-', and 'for' one by one.
install details
You can simply extract the content of the .tar.gz into your vim directory.
However, I recommend to use pathogen (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=2332)
and to extract into bundle/vim-cmdpathup instead.

You can also directly clone from the github repository into bundle/.
