There is a cool vim script: http://vim.wikia.com/wiki/Highlight_multiple_words

I found the script today. This script is what I want exactly.

It works well with gvim 7.2. (Both of Windows and Linux)
But I wish I can use it on linux shell too. Unfortunately it doesn't work.

Is it possible? Or is there another script we can use.

Thanks.

I've found the alternative script. vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=479 – Benjamin Jun 1 '10 at 7:29
    
Oops, I found another script. I think this is better one. vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=1238 – Benjamin Jun 1 '10 at 8:50
    
@Benjamin: where do you put your downloaded scripts? – akira Jun 1 '10 at 11:03
    
@akira Linux, ~/.vim/plugin. Windows, C:\Program Files\Vim\vimfiles\plugin – Benjamin Jun 1 '10 at 15:09

I found the script.

You can download the script at here.

Just \m on the word you want to highlight.
You could select visual block then \m
And you could add more colors.

put the plugins under %USERPROFILE%\vimfiles. maybe put the unixish .vimrc to %USERPROFILE%\_vimrc.

Is the path important? I can't understand why do you recommend the path. Please explain more about that. – Benjamin Jun 2 '10 at 13:31
    
"Linux, ~/.vim/plugin. Windows, C:\Program Files\Vim\vimfiles\plugin" ... the path i mentioned is the windows equivalent for the linux one. on linux you put the files in your home, on windows you work on the global folders? bad bad bad behavior. – akira Oct 3 '10 at 8:45
