If you want to use a single vimrc on Unix-like Vim (which can only
handle LF-only ends-of-lines) and on Mac-Classic-like Vim (which can
handle either LF-only or CR-only but only if 'fileformats' [plural] is
not empty) you may have to (1) make sure that your vimrc was written
with 'fileformat' (singular) set to "unix" (use :setlocal ff=unix just
before writing it) and (2) invoke Vim with --cmd "set ffs=mac,unix" on
On account of being a democracy and run by the people, we are the only
nation in the world that has to keep a government four years, no
what it does.
