- Especially when 'encoding' is utf-8, it is recommended to start
'fileencodings' with ucs-bom.
- It is always recommended to end the 'fileencodings' with some 8-bit
encoding, which will serve as default
- It is useless to put more than one 8-bit encoding in 'fileencodings',
nothing after the first 8-bit encoding will ever be tried
- ucs-2 is obsolete, utf-16 should be used instead. (UTF-16 can
represent codepoints up to U+10FFFF, using surrogate pairs for anything
above U+FFFF. UCS-2 cannot go further up than U+FFFF and surrogates are
invalid when using it.)
- For ucs-something and utf-something other than utf-8 (and utf-7 which
is also obsolete), big-endian is assumed unless you explicitly specify
little-endian, even when running on a little-endian machine. So, for
Vim, utf-16 is the same as utf-16be, not utf-16le, even on Intel x86
- It is very hard to detect utf-16 (and the obsolete ucs-2) correctly
unless there is a BOM (in which case ucs-bom will handle it)
- In recent versions of Vim (including all patchlevels of 7.3),
++enc=something completely bypasses the 'fileencodings' heuristics,
forcing the charset you mentioned. You may get � or hollow-box wildcards
if the file contents are invalid for that encoding.
For "Western" locales, I recommend
For East-Asian locales there is a script somewhere that improves on the
'fileencodings' heuristic (trying to discriminate as best as possible
between the common encodings used for the various CJK languages) but I
don't know the details.
