Let say I am working on a code which look like this, in C for example.

function foo() {
  int a;
  int b;
  15 kLoC
  for (int i = 0; i < n; i++) {
    15 kLoC
    if (bar) {
      while (true) {
        **cursor is here**

I would like vim display a summary of the context where the cursor is, something like:

funtcion foo()
  for (int i = 0; i < n; i++)
    if (bar)
      while (true)

I hope 15 kLoC doesn't mean '15 thousand lines of code'. – pavium Feb 9 '10 at 10:41
It is just an example. The meaning of 15 kLoC is scrolling to find where can be very hard in some cases. – Jérôme Feb 9 '10 at 10:47

I finally find a plugin doing what I am looking for:

CTX: C context for Vim

You could do Code Folding to achieve this, take a look here

It was not specified, but the purpose here is to make easier the understanding of an unknown source code. Code folding seems to not be the best solution. – Jérôme Feb 9 '10 at 13:11
Yeah in that case no, I was thinking of my own code and having a better overview. – Sideshowcoder Feb 9 '10 at 15:26
