characterize.vim

In Vim, pressing

ga
on a character reveals its representation in decimal, octal, and hex. Characterize.vim modernizes this with the following additions:
  • Unicode character names:
    U+00A9 COPYRIGHT SYMBOL
  • Vim digraphs (type after
     to insert the character): 
    Co
    ,
    cO
  • Emoji codes:
    :copyright:
  • HTML entities:
    ©

Installation

If you don't have a preferred installation method, I recommend installing pathogen.vim, and then simply copy and paste:

cd ~/.vim/bundle
git clone git://github.com/tpope/vim-characterize.git
