One nice feature of vim is the quickfix mode (:help quickfix) - after calling :make you can navigate through the error messages of e.g. your C compiler and vim jumps to the right locations.

How do I use that with pdflatex?

I mean most times I am only interested in errors and 'undefined reference' warnings (or something like that) - and not in over/under-full foo messages etc.

Have a look at latex-suite plugin. If you do not want the all the functionality of latex-suite, you can just copy the values of makeprg and errorformat

  • I only want to use latex-suite folding (since I dislike latex-box's one). Do you know how can achieve that? I believe that just copying the folding.vim file is not enough.
