It would be very awesome for a ToggleShowFunc command, so f1 could show/hide it --Halkeye 18:06, July 15, 2010 (UTC)

Uploaded update (1.5.9) that includes this feature. Don't know why I didn't think of it originally. Thanks for the idea! --dvehrs 18:15, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

On line 295 the definition of function ShowFuncFoldText missed the leading "s:".


 function! ShowFuncFoldText()

Should be:

 function! s:ShowFuncFoldText()

It will generate error when no ctags binary is found:

 ShowFunc exting.  (Cleaning up functions)
 Error detected while processing /Users/tyuan/.vim/plugin/ShowFunc.vim:

Already had a similar fix in the version I was using but it appears I may not have uploaded it. Released a new version (1.5.9) that I can confirm does not have these issues. Thanks for the report! --dvehrs 18:15, February 21, 2013 (UTC)

The script fails if the user has a CTAGS environment variable with certain things set that the script is not expecting. I have "--append" in my CTAGS, for instance. I'm trying to change the binary to the equivalent of "env CTAGS= ctags", but it's failing at the executable test. I'm working on it. -- 15:59, October 8, 2014 (UTC)
