:help 'include' -- 'inc' = how to determine a line might be an 'include'
:help 'includeexpr' -- 'inex' = how to transform that line into a filename
Generally, filetypes set up some minimal setup, usually enough to handle
files in the same directory or a subdir.
E.g. ft=python sets up:
(which doesn't work... but that's a topic for a different thread)
Obviously there are lots of cases where it could be improved, and it
often depends on the way a project is set up. Just wanted to point out
the simple setup already present. Most third-party ftplugins do this,
too. So, again, you might not have to do the work yourself.
If you do end up trying this on your own, this command is helpful:
:che! -- show all files detected as includes
