I had a real difficulty installing vim plugins on mac. I know for a plugin to be installed it has to be seen by runtimepath. According to vim docs, this is
Macintosh: "$VIM:vimfiles, $VIMRUNTIME, $VIM:vimfiles:after"
First off, what does $VIM:vimfiles mean?? It is certainly not $VIM/vimfiles, as (~/.vim/vimfiles) does not work. So my options are
1) put my plugin in /usr/share/vim/vim73 (my $VIMRUNTIME, which i know to be BAD)
2) find a way to make vim look at my home directory when including plugins. I have putting my plugin in:
~/.vim/plugin.vim ~/.vim/vimfiles/plugin.vim ~/.vim/plugin/plugin.vim
All to no avail. Can somebody help me out here? Thanks!
