script type
This script highlights words under the cursor like many IDEs.

You can control highlighting by highlighting group names.


  (A right hand side value is a default value.)

  g:HiCursorWords_delay = 200
      A delay for highlighting in milliseconds.
      Smaller value may cause your machine slow down.

  g:HiCursorWords_hiGroupRegexp = ''
      If empty, all words are highlighted.
      If not empty, only the specified highlight group is highlighted.
      (my memo: 'Identifier\|vimOperParen')

      To investigate highlight group name, the next variable may help you.

  g:HiCursorWords_debugEchoHiName = 0
      If not 0, echoes the highlight group name under the cursor.

Hightlight groups:

  (Do :highlight! as you like.)
