|bytecolor||how would you open a file a root from within vim?|
like 'sudo vim file' on the cl?
|Tonren||How can I run some commands in my .vimrc ONLY if a file is of a certain type?|
|majd||hey, is there like a vim color scheme generator?|
|bytecolor||what ever do you mean?|
|ion_bidon||thank you all; I have finished the first version of the scrit buffers search; I'll fix the bugs and upload another day|
|majd||bytecolor, i'm trying to modify an existing color scheme|
|bytecolor||majd, look at other syntax files|
I'm not good at editing them myself, I poke around and find one I like for a particular language
|majd||how do i change the background color?|
i can't find an option for it
it just says =dark
|SAS_Spidey01||you can set background= to dark or light as far as I know|
|majd||well different color schemes have different light or dark backgrounds....|
|SAS_Spidey01||I think motif/athena gvim might have a -bg option, (Ii rarly use gvim)|
probably would be best to look at the colo file then
|Chap00lin||if ~/.vimrc is a symlink, will Vim SOURCE the target file of that symlink when Vim is started up?|
|SAS_Spidey01||man 7 symlink|
|tpope||not all of us have that manpage|
what SAS_Spidey01 means to say is, yes, that's how symlinks work
|SAS_Spidey01||Well, my systems man 7 is 'Misc' hehe|
|tpope||yes that's standard|
but documenting symlinks is not
sounds like something gentoo users might need
|SAS_Spidey01||my symlink(7) is dated 1994.... but I do see your point very well|
|Chap00lin||symlinks are gentoo usage?|
and why is Spidey walkin around with an eyes-shrouding overhead wedgy?
|SAS_Spidey01||I've never had a problem using symlinks to files with any app, except file managment tools with documented switches|
|SAS_Spidey01||I eat manuals for breakfast...|
|Chap00lin||mi likesess ssymlinkz|
.vimrc is sourced if found in ANY current working directory??
|jesusphreak||Hello, I was trying to install a theme, and it says to place it in ~/.vim/colors/|
my Mac does not allow folders with a leading .
what am I supposed to do?
