### Running Code
To run code directly from vim, press `F5`. The currently open code will execute without you having to type anything.
Can be used to execute code written in C, C++, Java, Python, Go, Octave, Bash scripts and HTML. To edit how you want your code to be executed, make changes in the file
### Cope
Query `:help cope` if you are unsure what cope is. It's super useful!

" Following file contains the commands on how to run the currently open code.
" The default mapping is set to F5 like most code editors.
" Change it as you feel comfortable with, keeping in mind that it does not
" clash with any other keymapping.
" NOTE: Compilers for different systems may differ. For example, in the case
" of C and C++, we have assumed it to be gcc and g++ respectively, but it may
" not be the same. It is suggested to check first if the compilers are installed
" before running the code, or maybe even switch to a different compiler.
" NOTE: Adding support for more programming languages
" Just add another elseif block before the 'endif' statement in the same
" way it is done in each case. Take care to add tabbed spaces after each
" elseif block (similar to python). For example:
" elseif &filetype == '<your_file_extension>'
" exec '!<your_compiler> %'
" NOTE: The '%' sign indicates the name of the currently open file with extension.
" The time command displays the time taken for execution. Remove the
" time command if you dont want the system to display the time
