Vim Configuration

This page is a living document tracking the succession of changes I've made to my Vim configuration (.vimrc) file. As I am learning Vim and extending my usage thereof I will track the configuration changes incrementally that I've found useful and list them here.

The change descriptions below are ordered by date, with the latest at the top.

Mapping of keys for using tab commands:

F6 for specifying a file to open in a new tab, F7 to jump to the previous tab, F8 to jump to the next.

map <F6> :tabe
map <F7> :tabp<CR>
map <F8> :tabn<CR>
Showing line numbers:
set numbers
Using 4 space characters for tabs:
