Re: Multiple windows?

/Applications/vim/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g foo.pm bar.pm stuff.pm
/Applications/vim/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g index.html header.html
My *ONLY* beef about doing this is that the dock items for Vim do not
have a specific label set for them. So you have to remember which one
to cmd-Tab to. I'd like to see the option to set the Dock label to
something other than "Vim" (ie - active file being edited). I checked
the Carbon and Cocoa docs and did not see any calls to make this
happen. Seems to be set to the Application's name. Perhaps setting that?
Anyway, in fact, I have the following in my .tcshrc
alias vim /Applications/vim/Vim.app/Contents/MacOS/Vim -g
alias pvim 'pushd \!*; vim `cat MANIFEST` &; popd'
The pvim alias is cool for Perl programmer who work on modules ... as
it will open an instance of Vim with all your files opened ... in the
order they are listed in MANIFEST. :) I put my favorite files at the
top making them easy to switch via :b1 :b2 :b3, etc.
So, I use multiple instances of Vim running, buffers and split windows
in vim ... all spanned across my main monitor and my laptop's built-in
monitor. Coolness! Thanks for Vim on OS X, guys!
