MAPS						hlt
	\hlt  : reveals a linked list of highlighting from the top-level down
	        to the bottom level for the cursor position.  For vim 7.1
	        with patch 215, will also reveal the syntax stack at the cursor
	        position.

COMMANDS					:HLT :HLT! :HLTm
	:HLT  : same as \hlt, but in a command format.
	:HLT! : same as \hlt, but will execute on every CursorMoved event,
	        so one can see the highlighting trace and syntax stack as
		one moves the cursor.  The next :HLT! will toggle this mode
		off.
		May enable mouse-based balloons, too (see hilinks-beval).
	:HLTm : same as :HLT! (provided so AsNeeded can trigger off it)
	:HLTX : like :HLT, but also converts the colors into an xterm-256-color
	        index
	:HLTX!: like :HLT!, but also converts the colors into an xterm-256-color
	        index

	NOTE: Vim 7.1 with patch#215 required for the syntax stack.

BEVAL						hilinks-beval
	By default and with :HLT!, if your vim supports 'beval', hilinks will enable
	beval and install a ballon expression ('bexpr').  You can
	prevent that by putting
		let g:hilinks_nobeval= 1
	into your .vimrc .

	This feature means that a hovering mouse will show a highlighting
	trace when :HLT! is used to enable syntax and highlighting tracing
	as you move the cursor.
