I might be totally off here, but that's my humble understanding :)
The ":sts" command, OTOH, offers a potential list of candidate
tags, allowing the user to pick from among them, and then split
to that tag. So, I think while Dr. Chip's macro is a redundancy
of ^W] as it stands, if changed to "sts", it should do what the
However, IIUC, there's already a command that does this too...
Just as g] describes ("like CTRL-], but use ':tselect' instead of
':tag'"), this does it splitting first.
Both are pretty easy to remember, as the ^W prefix is the general
"do something window-y with the following commands" (in this
case, "split"), and the "]" is used for various tag jumping
actions, with "g" modifying the "]" as a "tag-select" behavior.
