876vim 6.1 - mac 10.2.3 - X11 0.2.1 - color syntax: not working
- Feb 20, 2003Hi,
I've compiled vim 6.1 sources on Mac OS 10.2.3; also compiled the
current vim CVS code. The vim binary does not do syntax highlighting
inside an xterm started by X11 on the Mac.
I have this (and only this) in my .vimrc file:
I checked the access time of the .vimrc file and it is being read by
Even doing the following inside of vim doesn't make it work:
So, I tried some experiments:
If I ssh from the Mac xterm to a Linux box, and then start vim on the
linux box inside of the Mac xterm , it does syntax highlighting just
fine. This would lead me to believe that it's vim on the Mac that is at
If I open an xterm window from the linux box onto the Mac, and then ssh
from inside that xterm back into the Mac and start vim running on the
Mac, syntax highlighting works fine. This would lead me to believe that
it's vim that is at fault.
Summary: vim on the Mac does syntax highlighting as long as the xterm
comes from another box and you've logged back into the Mac from inside
that xterm. And vim from another box does syntax highlighting inside of
a Mac xterm. But vim on the Mac inside of a Mac xterm doesn't work.
Can anyone shed some color on this problem?
