Hi all,

Has anyone used the vim module recently and

I recently installed the third-party vim module for syntax highlighting in
my minimal install of ConTeXt MKIV/LuaTeX:

./first-setup.sh --extras="t-vim"
context --generate

I tried a minimal example from the manual:

\usemodule [vim]
\definevimtyping [C]
\startvimcolorscheme [default]
\definevimsyntax [Type] [style=boldmono]
\definevimsyntax [PreProc] [style=slantedmono]
#include <stdio.h>
#include <stdlib.h>
void main() {
    printf("Hello World\n");

You can see the ConTeXt live output (See full
The problem is:

! I can't find file `texweb-vimsyntax.tmp-vimsyntax.tmp'.
<to be read again>

Looks like the filename munging has some issues.

Also, when I manually type in the correct file name, I then get further
errors which seem to indicate the source code is not within a literal

! You can't use `macro parameter character #' in horizontal mode.
l.1 #
     include <stdio.h>

I have vim installed and accessible on the path, and do have the C syntax.

I'm not TeXpert enough to troubleshoot the actual source, does anyone know
what might cause this behavior?
