Re: Help with ruby Vim Extensions on OS X Tiger

I then clicked on the ":" and typed this:
I got this error message:
E474 Invalid argument ff=unixlw
Therefore, nothing is changed and this is still broken...

*** REMOTE GEMS ***
vim-ruby (2005.09.15, 2004.09.20)
Ruby configuration files for Vim. Run 'vim-ruby-install.rb' to
Has anyone used installed this with the VIM 7.0aa ALPHA version on OS
X? Should I install this version (meaning will it ruin the working
copy of gvim/vim that I already have installed)?
Any tips, suggestions, and help are greatly appreciated.....
Many, many thanks!
