807Re: patchmode truncates filename [carbon vim 6.1.184]
- Nov 6, 2002Looks like a problem only on MacOSX, specifically with
vim compiled with the Carbon GUI.
I compiled different versions of vim 6.1.200:
RH Linux 7.2 (with GTK GUI): ok
MacOSX (without GUI): ok
MacOSX (with Carbon GUI): NOT OK
Strange that the problem exhibits itself in the
version compiled with the Carbon GUI, but not in the
Even if I run the (with Carbon GUI) version from
within Terminal.app, I get the weird truncation
