KRL for Vim (7.4 or later) is a collection of Vim scripts to help programing KUKA industrial robots (https://www.kuka.com/en-de/products/robot-systems/industrial-robots).

It provides

*    syntax highlighting,
*    indenting,
*    folding,
*    support for commentary vimscript #3695, matchit vimscript #39 and matchup vimscript #5624,
*    mappings and settings to navigate through code in a backup folder structure,
*    text objects for functions and folds,
*    optimized folding and concealing for viewing VRKC and
*    completion of words from known or custom global files like $config.dat,
*    mappings to insert a body of a new DEF, DEFFCT or DEFDAT based on user defined templates or hopefully sane defaults.

Note: Keep your files to be edited in one folder or in a regular robot backup folder structure. KRL for Vim modifies 'path' accordingly. Since version 2.0.0 KRC1 backups are supported too.
Note to Linux users: Keep your files to be edited on a FAT file system. Some features need the case insensitive file system to work properly.

See https://github.com/KnoP-01/krl-for-vim#FAQ on how to use more than just highlight and indent.

krl.vim 1.1.1 2016-04-15 7.0 Patrick Meiser-Knosowski I think I'm getting closer to how a syntax file is supposed to be done. I changed to much to list here. Depending on your colorscheme it might not look very different.
Main changes:

* enum values are now considered Constant (no need for "highlight Enum ..." any more)
* devided stuff into sub groups
