|This script has a number of maps that intercept various motions and cause the current line to be highlighted. It is a variant of <HiMtchBrkt.vim> (vimtip#177).
\hcli : initiate HiCurLine operation
\hcls : stop HiCurLine operation
(see vimtip#411 to have HiCurLine automatically begin highlighting)
HiCurLine.vim uses the HL_HiCurLine highlighting group (by default) to specify the highlighting of the current line. One may change the highlighting group HiCurLine uses with the g:HL_HiCurLine variable. By default,
let g:HL_HiCurLine= "HL_HiCurLine"
and <HiCurLine.vim> will specify that group internally. Otherwise, one may change the group used to whatever one wishes:
let g:HL_HiCurLine= "Search"
let g:HL_HiCurLine= "Function"
etc. The default highlighting is: (background is a setting, see :he 'bg')
background == dark : blue text on cyan background
background == light: cyan text on blue background
(alpha/beta version available at http://www.drchip.org/astronaut/vim/index.html#HICURLINE)
|1. Put into your .vim/plugin or
_vimfiles\plugin directory (Unix/Windows)
2. \hcli (actually <Leader> hcli) will
begin the highlighting.
3. \hcls will terminate HiCurLine activity, restoring any previous maps, etc. (actually <Leader>hcls)
(see :he mapleader for more on how to customize the leading characters of mappings)

||* \hclt and :HCL now toggles [HiCurLine] mode
* Cursorhold/FocusGained update time now set to 200ms
* go =~ 'm' now used in test to see if menus are to be generated
||Several small improvements this time: HiCurLine now uses CursorHold to update its highlighting when the colorscheme has been changed. More motion support: gg and G. The highlighting group HL_HiCurLine is used, thereby permitting the user to override it. The g:HL_HiCurLine variable is "HL_HiCurLine" by default, but the user may change that (ex. let g:HL_HiCurLine="Search").
