leave a comment »


" Copied from $VIMRUNTIME/vimrc_example.vim

" An example for a vimrc file.
"
" Maintainer: Bram Moolenaar <Bram@vim.org>
" Last change: 2002 Sep 19
"
" To use it, copy it to
" for Unix and OS/2: ~/.vimrc
" for Amiga: s:.vimrc
" for MS-DOS and Win32: $VIM\_vimrc
" for OpenVMS: sys$login:.vimrc

" When started as "evim", evim.vim will already have done these settings.
if v:progname =~? "evim"
finish
endif

" Use Vim settings, rather then Vi settings (much better!).
" This must be first, because it changes other options as a side effect.
set nocompatible

" allow backspacing over everything in insert mode
set backspace=indent,eol,start

if has("vms")
set nobackup " do not keep a backup file, use versions instead
else
set backup " keep a backup file
endif
set history=50 " keep 50 lines of command line history
set ruler " show the cursor position all the time
set showcmd " display incomplete commands
set incsearch " do incremental searching
set number " show line number
set tabstop=2
set shiftwidth=2
set expandtab
set textwidth=80
set background=dark

set gfn=Monaco:h14 " setting to a good Mac OS X font

" For Win32 GUI: remove 't' flag from 'guioptions': no tearoff menu entries
" let &guioptions = substitute(&guioptions, "t", "", "g")

" Don't use Ex mode, use Q for formatting
map Q gq

" This is an alternative that also works in block mode, but the deleted
" text is lost and it only works for putting the current register.
"vnoremap p "_dp

" Switch syntax highlighting on, when the terminal has colors
" Also switch on highlighting the last used search pattern.
if &t_Co > 2 || has("gui_running")
syntax on
set hlsearch
endif

" Only do this part when compiled with support for autocommands.
if has("autocmd")

" Enable file type detection.
" Use the default filetype settings, so that mail gets 'tw' set to 72,
" 'cindent' is on in C files, etc.
" Also load indent files, to automatically do language-dependent indenting.
filetype plugin indent on

" Put these in an autocmd group, so that we can delete them easily.
augroup vimrcEx
au!

" For all text files set 'textwidth' to 78 characters.
autocmd FileType text setlocal textwidth=78

" When editing a file, always jump to the last known cursor position.
" Don't do it when the position is invalid or when inside an event handler
" (happens when dropping a file on gvim).
autocmd BufReadPost *
\ if line("'\"") > 0 && line("'\"") <= line("$") |
\ exe "normal g`\"" |
\ endif
autocmd BufRead *.rhtml set filetype=eruby

augroup END

else

set autoindent " always set autoindenting on

endif " has("autocmd")
