Integrating perlcritic and vim
Naturally, you'll need to season this to taste, but here's how I've now integrated perlcritic and vim, making it easy to jump to specific errors.
First, drop this into your .vimrc:
" quickfix for Perl error formats set errorformat+=%m\ at\ %f\ line\ %l\. set errorformat+=%m\ at\ %f\ line\ %l
I also have the following mapping:
noremap ,c :!time perlc --critic %<cr>
perlc hack which makes all of this work.
This hack looks like the following:
Now, if I'm editing something, I can just hit
,c and it will run something like
perl -c. Then hitting
:cf takes me to the first error, while
:cn keeps jumping to the next error, including the perlcritic errors. Note the command line for perlcritic in the program above:
perlcritic --quiet --verbose "%f:%l:%m\\n"
--verbose flag writes the output into a format that vi's quickfix mode is happy with.
This makes making your programs "perlcritic safe" quick and easy.
