Is there a way to configure vim regarding what file types it considers "suitable" for opening?
Let me clarify by an example. Imagine you are working on a latex document. Once you build your file, you have the following in your directory (along with other files related to the build):
X.aux X.log X.out X.pdf X.tex
Now if you are working on another file (say
Y.tex), and you want to
:sp X.tex, you can use
<Tab> to cycle through possible files, i.e.:
It seems that vim already makes a selection of what files you are most likely to want, and autocompletes to those files first. This is the order in which my vim is autocompleting files:
X.pdf X.tex X.aux X.log X.out
Again, it looks like vim has decided I probably want to open either the
.tex file and is presenting them to me first and in alphabetical order. Then it shows the rest of the files, again in alphabetical order. First, is my understanding correct?
If so, how can I tell vim that it shouldn't think I am interested in opening
<Tab> would immediately get me the
.tex file as the file I am really looking for.
