# vimparse.pl - Reformats the error messages of the Perl interpreter for use
# with the quickfix mode of Vim
#
# Copyright (©) 2001 by Jörg Ziefle <joerg.ziefle@gmx.de>
# You may use and distribute this software under the same terms as Perl itself.
#
# Usage: put one of the two configurations below in your ~/.vimrc (without the
# description and '# ') and enjoy (be sure to adjust the paths to vimparse.pl
# before):
#
# Program is run interactively with 'perl -w':
#
# set makeprg=$HOME/bin/vimparse.pl\ %\ $*
# set errorformat=%f:%l:%m
#
# Program is only compiled with 'perl -wc':
#
# set makeprg=$HOME/bin/vimparse.pl\ -c\ %\ $*
# set errorformat=%f:%l:%m
#
# Usage:
#	vimparse.pl [-c] [-f <errorfile>] <programfile> [programargs]
#
#		-c	compile only, don't run (perl -wc)
#		-f	write errors to <errorfile>
#
# Example usages:
#	* From the command line:
#		vimparse.pl program.pl
#
#		vimparse.pl -c -f errorfile program.pl
#		Then run vim -q errorfile to edit the errors with Vim.
#
#	* From Vim:
#		Edit in Vim (and save, if you don't have autowrite on), then
#		type ':mak' or ':mak args' (args being the program arguments)
#		to error check.
#
# Version history:
#	0.2 (04/12/2001):
#		* First public version (sent to Bram)
#		* -c command line option for compiling only
#		* grammatical fix: 'There was 1 error.'
#		* bug fix for multiple arguments
#		* more error checks
#		* documentation (top of file, &usage)
#		* minor code clean ups
#	0.1 (02/02/2001):
#		* Initial version
#		* Basic functionality
#
# Todo:
#	* test on more systems
#	* use portable way to determine the location of perl ('use Config')
#	* include option that shows perldiag messages for each error
#	* allow to pass in program by STDIN
#	* more intuitive behaviour if no error is found (show message)
#
# Tested under SunOS 5.7 with Perl 5.6.0.  Let me know if it's not working for
# you.

Usage:
	$0 [-c] [-f <errorfile>] <programfile> [programargs]

		-c	compile only, don't run (executes 'perl -wc')
		-f	write errors to <errorfile>

Examples:
	* At the command line:
		$0 program.pl
		Displays output on STDOUT.

		$0 -c -f errorfile program.pl
		Then run 'vim -q errorfile' to edit the errors with Vim.

	* In Vim:
		Edit in Vim (and save, if you don't have autowrite on), then
		type ':mak' or ':mak args' (args being the program arguments)
		to error check.
