The Vim parser¶
:help script-variable in the Vim documentation:
*script-variable* *s:var* In a Vim script variables starting with "s:" can be used. They cannot be accessed from outside of the scripts, thus are local to the script.
Exuberant Ctags records the prefix s: as part of a script-local variable’s name. However, it is omitted from function names. As requested in issue #852 on GitHub, Universal Ctags now also includes the prefix in script-local function names.
