I am relatively new to vim, but I'm trying to get acquainted. I use vim mainly for .tex files and on two different machines (office and home). In both cases, I use Vim-Latex. No problem on the machine in the office (at the moment, I don't remember the version of vim used there.) At home (vim 8.2), instead, when jumping between parentheses, I get the following error message:

Error detected while processing function matchit#Match_wrapper[161]..<SNR>71_ParseSkip:                                                                                                 
line   10:
E488: Trailing characters: . strpart(skip,2). "'"
Error detected while processing function matchit#Match_wrapper:
line  174:
E121: Undefined variable: r
line  176:
E121: Undefined variable: r
Press ENTER or type command to continue

Also, I have tried jumping between parentheses in a blank file (no .tex), and I don't have any problem there. Looking around, I found a solution for a similar problem, but involving a later version of vim.

I hope that someone can direct me towards a working solution.

Edit:

Here is a sample tex

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath}

\begin{document}
This is a sample text with a formula
\begin{equation}
  i \hbar \frac{d}{d t} \Psi(x,t) = \hat{H} \Psi(x,t)
\end{equation}
\end{document}

To reproduce the problem, I just go on any of the brackets on any of the lines and press "%" (on my keyboard, Shift+5.)

  • Welcome to Vi and Vim! Can you show some sample (La)TeX and exact key-presses?

  • @D.BenKnoble Thanks for the comment. I just included a sample code and the key strokes.

  • Seems like something to post on github issues pages of the plugin.

    The error message quotes matchit#Match_wrapper[161]..<SNR>71_ParseSkip. This tells me the error is from the matchit plugin, which can be found in "{vim-installation-directory}/pack/dist/opt/matchit/autoload/matchit.vim", and in particular, s:ParseSkip at the end of that file. This matchit plugin is maintained (upstream) in github.com/chrisbra/matchit. Perhaps you could file an issue there :)

Taking inspiration from @husB's comment, I copied the matchit.vim file from another computer I have access to with vim 81 installed and copied on this present computer with vim 82. Now, everything seems to work.

In case anyone is interested or hoping it can be useful to someone, I post here the differences between the matchit.vim files in the two versions (notice the date of last change)
