This script adds the :LineLength command that can be used to toggle
hilighting of the part of lines that are too long.

The code can also be found here: https://github.com/aklt/vim-line_length

Important: Please open an issue at github if you find a problem!

Add a mapping to toggle highlighting of long lines:

    nmap R :LineLength<CR>

The max. line length can be set in a modeline in a comment within
one of the 5 last lines of a file:

    // ...
    // Lines longer than 80 characters will get a blue background
    // ll: 80 blue

Customize defaults:

    let g:LineLength_LineLength = 80
    let g:LineLength_guibg = 'red'
    let g:LineLength_ctermbg = 1
