Vim syntax highlighting for the IBM i

As you may have noticed, some of the personal projects I have mentioned on here have been written for the IBM i. I generally develop these locally in Vim and then copy the source files to a server so that I can compile and test them as and when I have a chance.

I like Vim. When I want to just sit down and get something down, Vim provides a distraction-free environment with a powerful collection of features. One of these features is syntax highlighting, and Vim comes with syntax files for a host of languages as standard. Unfortunately, RPG is not one of the languages supported out of the box.

Inevitably, however, it didn’t take much time with Google to discover that someone else had the same thought as me some time ago. So I must say thank you to Martin Rowe of DBG/400 for this rather gorgeous collection of syntax files.
