This plug-in improves the integration between Vim and your operating system:
- The :Fullscreen command and F11 mapping toggle Vim between normal and full-screen mode
- The :Maximize command and Control-F11 mapping toggle Vim between normal/maximized state: They show/hide the menu bar, tool bar and/or tab line
- The :Open command and mapping know how to open file and directory names, URLs and e-mail addresses in your favorite programs (file manager, web browser, e-mail client, etc)
- The xolox#shell#execute() function enables other Vim plug-ins to execute external commands in the background (i.e. asynchronously) without opening a command prompt window on Windows
Two Windows DLL files are included to perform these functions on Windows, while on UNIX external commands are used.
