      I think there is also a perl script distributed with Vim, in the runtime directory, called vim2html.pl. I'm not at all sure what it does.

      I don't know about "promised" but it would be a nice feature.

      How should it work? I haven't put any effort into such a thing because I'm not sure how it ought to work.

      I could just find any occurrence of each tag as found by the ctags interface and wrap it in a link, but to which file? TOhtml only gives you an unsaved buffer with a default file name, which the user could save anywhere with any name at all. I could just use href='./other_file.ext.html' but then the user must be sure all linked files are accessible from the same directory.

      How does formatvim handle this? Maybe consistency is the name of the game here. Or does anyone have thoughts on how they would LIKE it to work?
