I'm trying to get Vim and CScope set up. A friend of mine has it set up, and it's working well, but when I try to run :cs find f (anything!) Vim outputs:

E319: Sorry, the command is not available in this version.

I've tried with Vim 7.2 and 7.3 with CScope Version 15.7a and 16.0a.

I'm trying to edit inside a Rails application.

Does ":echo has('cscope')" show a 1 or a 0? If 0, your version of Vim doesn't have support for cscope. – Heptite Dec 17 '11 at 2:24

Make sure +cscope is built in vim.

vim --version

That was it. I just didn't know how to check. Rebuilt it with scope support, and I'm in business. Thank you! – YuKagi Dec 17 '11 at 21:15
