linebox is a vim plugin to draw boxes and lines. Boxes are drawn by visually
selecting a rectangle, and then pressing either `<leader>b` or `<leader>B`
(with default mappings, enabled in vimrc). Lines are drawn by setting a start
and end mark, and pressing `<leader>L` (with default mappings, enabled in
vimrc). This will find the shortest path, from start to end (if there is a
path), no matter where the start and end positions are, avoiding any text.
Lines can start and stop on other lines, and will merge with them.


Features:

- Draw boxes with <leader>b
- Draw blended boxes with <leader>B
- Draw lines with <leader>L


Quick Start:

Add let g:linebox_default_maps = 1 to your vimrc (see "Default mappings" below).

Boxes:

Use visual mode to select a rectable, and make a box with <leader>b.

Use visual mode to select a rectable, and make a box with <leader>B to blend with other lines.

Lines:

Make a start and end mark with marks `a and `b. Then draw a line with <leader>L.

NOTE: There must be a path of whitespace from mark a to mark b.
