Displays the relative position of the cursor within the buffer on the left side of the screen using the `sign` feature.
This plugin is experimental and might slow down the rendering of Vim.


Sign style can be customized as follows.

" Default markers
let g:scroll_position_marker         = '>'
let g:scroll_position_visual_begin   = '^'
let g:scroll_position_visual_middle  = ':'
let g:scroll_position_visual_end     = 'v'
let g:scroll_position_visual_overlap = '<>'

" Additional markers disabled by default due to slow rendering
" let g:scroll_position_jump = '-'
" let g:scroll_position_change = '+'

" Not to enable plugin by default
" let g:scroll_position_auto_enable = 0

set t_Co=256
