Respected Monks,

Pardon me if this appears as a superficial question. I know for scripting, the text editor hardly matters, but is there anyone here using gVim 7.4 on Windows 7?

I started using gVim recently and was impressed the way it allows me to edit text. There were a lot of log file outputs, files filled in with 500+ lines of commands that needed to be verified for typos/missing command fields and gVim offers never seen before ways to filter/grep text and moving around.

After using gVim for 2 months, I now type :wq and hit caps lock (mapped caps lock to escape) in non gVim editors and its quite frustrating and confusing :), better that I use gVim to write Perl Scripts.

Anyone here using gVim 7.4 on Windows 7 for Perl Scripting? Most importantly, any recommended additions/updates that you would suggest specifically for Perl Scripting?

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
