Windows Vim settings

Tuesday, July 6th, 2004

Geez, the default settings for the windows version of vim suck! It's got all these crooked little 'shift-arrowkeys for selecting text' options and whatnot. I don't want that crap! Autoindenting was completely fubar too. So much so that I couldn't even normally insert text without each line violently shaking the left and right.

So I tweaked the vimrc settings to make Vim under windows as much the same as GVim for Linux as possible. I've put the resulting _vimrc online.

I also did some updates on the white.vim colorscheme.
