Rapid for Vim (7.4 or later) is a collection of Vim scripts to help programing ABB industrial robots (https://new.abb.com/products/robotics/industrial-robots).

It provides

*    syntax highlighting,
*    indenting,
*    concealing of structure values (e.g. MoveJ * v2500...),
*    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
*    completion of words from known or custom global files like EIO.cfg,
*    mappings to insert a body of a new PROC, FUNC, TRAP et al 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. Rapid for Vim modifies 'path' accordingly.
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/rapid-for-vim#FAQ on how to use more than just highlight and indent.
