# This file is a minimal clang-format vim-integration. To install:
# - Change 'binary' if clang-format is not on the path (see below).
# - Add to your .vimrc:
# if has('python')
# map <C-I> :pyf <path-to-this-file>/<cr>
# imap <C-I> <c-o>:pyf <path-to-this-file>/<cr>
# elseif has('python3')
# map <C-I> :py3f <path-to-this-file>/<cr>
# imap <C-I> <c-o>:py3f <path-to-this-file>/<cr>
# endif
# The if-elseif-endif conditional should pick either the python3 or python2
# integration depending on your vim setup.
# The first mapping enables clang-format for NORMAL and VISUAL mode, the second
# mapping adds support for INSERT mode. Change "C-I" to another binding if you
# need clang-format on a different key (C-I stands for Ctrl+i).
# With this integration you can press the bound key and clang-format will
# format the current line in NORMAL and INSERT mode or the selected region in
# VISUAL mode. The line or region is extended to the next bigger syntactic
# entity.
# You can also pass in the variable "l:lines" to choose the range for
# formatting. This variable can either contain "<start line>:<end line>" or
# "all" to format the full file. So, to format the full file, write a function
# like:
# :function FormatFile()
# : let l:lines="all"
# : if has('python')
# : pyf <path-to-this-file>/
# : elseif has('python3')
# : py3f <path-to-this-file>/
# : endif
# :endfunction
# It operates on the current, potentially unsaved buffer and does not create
# or save any files. To revert a formatting, just undo.
