Re: Bug#363558: syntax highlighting for crontab doesn't support the % feature
Wed, 19 Apr 2006 21:39:19 -0400
Below is a feature request from a user of the Debian Vim package for
recognizing crontab's % syntax as a special part of the command
specification. Could you consider updating crontab.vim to support this
and sending it to Bram? Vim 7 appears to be nearing release. Hopefully
this can make it in before that happens.
