Or, if you have filetype autodetection turned on, you can use:

    autocmd BufRead *.t set filetype=perl

This will trigger the FileType event which is used to load syntax files, etc. See :help filetype for details.

    On Debian Lenny, it appears that modeline is off by default in vim. You can put the following in your local .vimrc to enable:

    set syntax=on set modeline set modelines=2
    modelines=2 appears to be the number of lines from the top of file to scan for modelines. Then put this on the 2nd line of your source:
    # vim: syntax=perl
    You can manually set the syntax scheme in the vim session with
    :set syntax=perl
