script type
Better tab new: replaces the default tabnew command with a slightly smarter version, capable of understanding line numbers. This is very useful for programming, where filenames are usually expressed as "fname:line number". Even when grepping, the output format will usualy be "path/to/file:42". BTN won't reject these strings, it will instead open them and move the cursor to the appropiate line.
