IntelliSense in VIM for C++ developers.

IntelliSense is Microsoft‘s implementation of autocompletion, best known for its use in the Microsoft Visual Studio integrated development environment. In addition to completing the symbol names the programmer is typing, IntelliSense serves as documentation and disambiguation for variable names, functions and methods using reflection.

Vim is very powerful tool and can have autompletion  with help of couple of configurations and Omni completion.

Here is my .vimrc file. See Omni completion for details installation instruction.
