Hi, please how do I install this?

Thanks for helping out

As noted on the script page on, simply put it in the appropriate directory. On Unix, that's ~/.vim/syntax. On Windows, it's usually something like C:\Documents and Settings\johndoe\vimfiles\syntax, where "C:\Documents and Settings\johndoe" refers to your $HOME location, which you can ask Vim for with ":echo $HOME". The other suggested location of $VIMRUNTIME\syntax will work also but would be system-wide and risks being overwritten when you upgrade Vim. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 19:52, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
