( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

You'll find the links from atcroft very helpful, but here's a couple of other Windows tips I use.

Instead of installing Vim in Windows, I tend to use it via PortableApps, which I keep in my dropbox folder. Since this doesn't afford the "Edit in vim" menu option, I just put a shortcut to it in my Send To folder to make it easier to access.

Another thing I do to allow me to use the same vimrc file that I use on other operating systems, I do things like this:

if has("win32") let g:windowsperl=1 else let g:windowsperl=0 let g:perlbrew=1 let g:usrbinperl=0 let g:usrlocalbinperl=0 let g:mcappsperlbrew=0 endif

Then I sort of switch between perls later in the config:

" perform a perl -c when writing a perl buffer " if g:perlbrew == 1 au BufWritePost *.pl,*.pm !/home/aharrison/.vimrc.perl -c "%" elseif g:usrbinperl == 1 au BufWritePost *.pl,*.pm !/usr/bin/perl -c "%" elseif g:usrlocalbinperl == 1 au BufWritePost *.pl,*.pm !/usr/local/bin/perl -c "%" elseif g:mcappsperlbrew == 1 au BufWritePost *.pl,*.pm !/mc/apps/perl/current/bin/perl -c "%" else au BufWritePost *.pl,*.pm !perl -c "%" endif

Other than the vimrc, I don't keep my Windows environment synced with my non-windows environment. Many of my plugins are either not geared towards Windows, or I simply don't care to use them under Windows, so I tend to block them out in my vimrc by wrapping chunks of it in blocks with if !has("win32") or if has("gui_win32").

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.
