*vim-branch-stack* is a Vim plugin helping to find the branching path to current line of code.


`vim-branch-stack` plugin is intended to help working on legacy C/C++ code where
functions are long and have many nested branches (`if-else`, `switch-case`,
`try-catch`, `while`, `for`).


The stack is shown in the location window after `BranchStack` command
execuiton while cursor is placed on the target line.

#### Example
##### main.cpp
int main ()
    const int meaning = 42;
    const int pi_floor = 3;
    if (meaning)
        if (pi_floor == 4)
            // Do the stuff
            // Cursor is here
    return 0;

##### Location window

1 main.cpp |6| if (meaning)
2 main.cpp |12| + else


The plugin has the following limitations:

  * Commented out code is not supported
  * `goto` is not supported
  * `do-while` is not supported
  * Preprocessing is not supported
