Forward searching refers to making a viewer display a given document at a given location from within Vim. At present, these viewers are known to support forward searching, but viewers that are not listed here may work, too:
|Skim||Apple / OS X Tiger||Supports also inverse searching|
|PDFView||Apple / OS X||No longer in development, supports also inverse searching|
|YAP||Windows||DVI, PS||ships with MikTex|
|okular||Linux/UNIX||DVI, PDF, PS and many more||Included in KDE 4|
\ls from within Vim
should make the viewer display the portion of the document where your
cursor is placed.
OS/X users need to set the
1 and provide a UNIX-like viewrule, that expects as
arguments the document, the linenumber and the sourcefile in this order.
Most DVI viewers need "source-special" information in order to do
forward (and inverse) searching. This information is embedded in the
dvi file if the LaTeX source is compiled with the
--src-specials option. By default, Latex-Suite does not
supply this argument to the compiler. See the section on
to find out how this option can be set.
Pdf viewers usually use a synctex(.gz) file. This can be enabled with the compiler flag
Within this suite it is however enabled by default, unless you change
