|Dealing with swap files is annoying. Most of the time you have to deal with a swap file because you either have the same file open in another window or it is a swap file left there by a previous crash.
This plugin does for you what you would do in these cases:
1. Is file already open in another Vim session in some other window?
2. If so, swap to the window where we are editing that file.
3. Otherwise, if swapfile is older than file itself, just get rid of it.
4. Otherwise, open file read-only so we can have a look at it and may save it.

Damian Conway presented this plugin at OSCON 2013 in his talk "More instantly better Vim" (http://programming.oreilly.com/2013/10/more-instantly-better-vim.html).
This version has been modified to work also on Linux systems. Both Vim and GVim are supported.
The original version of this plugin (only for Mac OX) is available at http://is.gd/IBV2013, together with other plugins presented in the same talk.
|Copy the `autoswap.vim` file in your `~/.vim/plugin` directory.
Or use Pathogen and just clone the git repository:
$ cd ~/.vim/bundle
$ git clone https://github.com/gioele/vim-autoswap.git
Linux users: you must install `wmctrl` to be able to automatically switch to the Vim window with the open file. `wmctrl` is already packaged for most distributions.
