digitalmars.D.ide - Help with d.vim Syntax file for Vim

Hi,

There seems to be some missing statements in the standard d.vim 
that gets distributed with vim regarding auto-commenting.
Whenever I am in a multiline comment for example a ddoc statement 
and start a new line by hitting the Enter key, the result is an 
indentation of 1 on the new line and no comment char unlike the 
syntax in normal c and cpp files. It doesn't matter if the 
comment start was with '/**' or '/++'.

I took a look at the runtime/syntax/c.vim for hacking the 
auto-commenting out of that file and putting it in d.vim. But I 
am not familiar with any of those calls.
I was wondering if someone who is more familiar with Vimscript 
can tell me what lines or quick fix I need to put in the syntax 
file to get the auto-commenting to work for d editing.

Have you tried https://github.com/JesseKPhillips/d.vim? I'm not sure if the issues you mentioned are fixed there, but if they're not I suggest you open issues on that repo. Last time I contributed there the author was helpful & responsive.

Thanks for the reply. I did take a quick peek at that repo. It supplies the d.vim that gets distributed with vim and it seems there is also an old issue that addresses the same/similar problem. https://github.com/JesseKPhillips/d.vim/issues/24

I suggest you ping the maintainer there. Perhaps he forgot about it, or he didn't have time to investigate it back when it was reported.
