but I only get this error:
E431: Format error in tags file "/Users/winckler/.vim/doc/tags"
Before byte 35
E149: Sorry, no help for help.txt
So I'm not sure why it would lock up on your machine...but this is
more of a Vim (as opposed to MacVim) and I don't understand much of
the Vim source code anyway.
By the way: the "tags" file is just an index for all the help files
that you have installed "locally" (in your ~/.vim folder). So it is
updated e.g. when you install a new plugin with VimBall. You can also
call ":helptags ~/.vim/doc" to update the "tags" file manually (this
will overwrite the old "tags" file).
You received this message from the "vim_mac" maillist.
