I am unable to get this working. Below are the setps I did:

1) downloaded the file and copied it to : ~/.vim/syntax/verilog_systemverilog.vim

 2) added the following in .gvimrc ->  au BufNewFile,BufRead *.sv,*.svh,*.vh,*.v so ~/.vim/syntax/verilog_systemverilog.vim


Is there anything else i need to do?

The comments int he file say , It Requires $VIMRUNTIME/syntax/verilog.vim to exist.

How do I set the variable and what should verilog.vim contain?

Since my last post, I still have some problems with this.

The problem happens when I've opened a few files with .sv and .svh extension in gvim.

After switching a few times between the files from 'Buffers' menu in gvim,

I lose the highlights.


This is what I have in .vimrc:


esekilxxen510 [11:06] [verif/xbabzak/sim_dl] -> cat ~/.vimrc
au BufNewFile,BufRead *.sv,*.svh,*.vh,*.v so ~/.vim/syntax/verilog_systemverilog.vim
set backspace=2
set hlsearch
set nu
