I have encountered some situations where I need to check if a value matches a regex in a list of regexes. For instance, say I have a list of regexes which match filetypes:
['gundo', 'nerdtree', 'git*']
I need to find out if the filetype of the current file matches any of these regexes. The way I would do it currently would look like this:
fun! IsIgnored() for ignored_ft in ignored_filetypes if &filetype =~ ignored_ft return 1 endif endfor return 0 endfun
However, it would be nice if there was a shorter way of doing this. Does vim have a function to do this, or do I just have to stick with the for loop?
