Vim Editor is very smart


I am programming in C++ or Java. I want to use the Vim editor, and have heard that I can configure the Vim editor to be able to go:

  1. From an object to the definition
  2. From a function to the definition
  3. From a class name to the definition

Do we have any professional Vim-er that could tell me how exactly to configure Vim for that?

  • What you're referring to is tags I believe. Check here for section 29.1 - using tags.
