comment How to install plugins for gedit on Mac OS X?
@Tobia I don't know where you got that idea. I have no problem with TextMate or developers who charge for their products. My reply was in response to Nil's snarky comment that made no attempt to answer the question. You might as well respond to every question on AskDifferent with "seriously?! buy a PC!"... It's not helpful and not what was asked for.

comment How to cancel LaTeX compiling in Terminal?
Ctrl-D seems to skip over the current error, but continues compiling. Is there a shortcut to abort compiling altogether? FYI I'm using latexmk

@HongxuChen sorry, i don't know what to try next. if i can't diagnose/reproduce the error it's hard to troubleshoot!

@HongxuChen hmm... this sort of does what you're asking, but unfortunately now it will break syntax highlighting on some files like .vimrc. i'll see if i can find a better solution. au BufNewFile,BufRead * if &syntax == '' | try | execute (':set filetype='.get(split(matchstr(resolve(@%),'\.[^.]*$'),'\.'), 0)) | catch | | endtry | endif

@HongxuChen I am actually just learning vimL, but the script above works for me. Are you 100% sure this is your problem? open you soft-link and type :set syn=anything.cpp and see if that works. If it does, try :echo resolve(@%) and let me know what you get.
