Updated DNS syntax file for VIM

September 14, 2012


When editing zone files with vim I always get annoyed by the fact that the syntax highlighting did not understand newer types ‘n stuff. I never did anything about until now.

Download this vim syntax file and drop it in ~/.vim/syntax. It adds newer (DNSSEC) types and base64 highlighting. Base64 only works when there are no embedded spaces (patch welcome to fix that btw!)
