srt.vim - Syntax file for vim which adds coloring scheme for Subrip (srt) format.
srt.vim - Vim is extended and improved version of one of the first full screen text editors which today comes with all unix like systems. Among huge number of options which makes vim very powerful text editor, vim also supports syntax highlighting which is implemented on the way which makes creating new, or modifying existing highlighting extensions very easy. I was playing with divx for some time and and sometimes I had to modify .srt files. Some specialized editors for .srt files imports their own extensions which could not be understood by divx players I used. To make errors like this or missing brackets easier to encounter, I wrote syntax file for vim helped me a lot and maybe will be of use to somebody else. To make coloring syntax of .srt files working, you just have to copy srt.vim to the /usr/share/vim/vim61/syntax directory (path depends on version of vim you have) and to add those lines to your ~/.vimrc file:
" Syntax highlighting for subtitle files in Subrip (srt) format
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.srt setf srt
srt.vim is a project similar to sub.vim but sub.vim has been written a long before srt.vim. This is the reason for having two projects for similar things.
Current version of srt.vim syntax file does not contain known bugs.
/usr/share/vim/vim61/syntax/srt.vim - Syntax file for Subrip (srt) format.
