Vim version 1.14 was the first public release of Vim, distributed on Fred Fish disk 591. The executable has the version information "Vi IMitation v1.14 (Nov 2 1991 0:36:35)". That is exactly 25 years ago. Raise your glass to Vim! (Bram Moolenaar)
So HAPPY BIRTHDAY VIM
There are plenty of settings for the language in vim. Regarding to vim's documentation there is a very simple way to set the language for a vim-session to english:
env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 vim
I love to use keyboard shortcuts and many times I need an editor quickly to paste some things. Therefore it would be cool to open the best editor of the world in paste-mode.
This archive contains a syntax-file for vim which enables a colorful "mail.log file". The colors are the same as the postfix-scheme of multitail.
If i wanted to edit a mail.log(postfix) with vim, i always have missed the colors. so i just created a (multitail -CS postfix)color-scheme for vim..
