lo-tech answer that I use e.g. when viewing diffs. I've got these
mappings in my ~/.gvimrc
map <D-1> :set co=80<CR>
map <D-2> :set co=165<CR>:winc =<CR>
When I diff something (with two vertical views) I hit Cmd-2 to resize
the window so that both views have 80 columns (the extra columns are
for the split and the gutter). When I am finished close the split and
hit Cmd-1 to go back to 80 columns.
There may be a way to automate this using autocommands but I cannot
help you with that. Try asking on vim_use.
