1 Using this tutorial

This tutorial assumes that you have vim version 6.1+ installed on your machine. To check, open vim and type


You will see the version in the first line of the output. Get the latest vim version from http://vim.sf.net.

Assuming you have Vim 6.1+ already up and running, follow the instructions here to set up Latex-Suite. Remember to make sure your 'grepprg' setting of Vim works.

Good, now you are all set to start the tutorial. Since this tutorial aims to explain the newbie-friendly version of Latex-Suite, it needs some GUI functionality. Therefore, at least for this tutorial, open the gui version of vim. (On MS windows, this is the default). Open up this help file in either the same gvim session in a split window or in a different session and follow the (friendly) instructions.
