I want to use VIM for keeping a sort of log book, behaving like VIM help, like in this VIM tip. I have it all set up, except for one little thing: how can I trick
:helptags into taking a variable as an argument? I don't want to hard-code the path.
What I want to do is basically this:
let g:NotesFilePath='~/Dropbox/notes' nmap ,nh :helptags g:NotesFileDir<CR>
Of course, then it says
E150: Not a directory: g:NotesFileDir
So the question is: is there a way to trick
:helptags into taking a variable argument, or do I have to hard-code the path?
EDIT: I did manage to add the directory to my runtime path, so the
tags file is picked up by VIM, so that's not a problem.
Oh, and symlinking isn't really an option for me: I want to save the file in a Dropbox so I can share it between my machines (including one Windows box).
