Re: .gvimrc OR .vimrc
- I place settings that work in both console ViM and and GUI ViM in .vimrc
and GUI only settings in .gvimrc.
For example, I set the font in the .gvimrc as well as the color settings
for the window status line, winpos, and lines/columns, etc.
Frankly, I don't think it matters if you only use a .vimrc. I like to
the settings apart but that's just me. It may matter more if you have
really large rc files.
