So if you're a frequent user of Vim's hlsearch feature, you may find yourself wishing that you could highlight multiple searches. Well Vim has support for this in its :match command, but doesn't make that particularly easy to use.

This plugin aims to put the full power of Vim's :match feature at the user's fingertips in the easiest way possible: as an extension of the existing search feature that you know and love.

You just search for something, and then pin that search with one of the SearchMatchN commands or key mappings.

install details
Clone with pathogen or copy the plugin file into your runtime (see README for details).
