Re: Help installing Scala support in gvim
> I am using OS X Tiger and gvim 7.0aa ALPHA...Customary remark: you might want to take a look at MacVim ( http://

'set gfn=...' line from your .vimrc as it comes with a nice default
font. Perhaps you also like to take a look at `colorscheme macvim`.

these changes will be gone. You should (as http://www.3plus4.de/

create the subfolders indent, syntax and ftdetect. Copy the scripts
into those folders.
Remove the scripts from where you've put them now.

syntax-highlighted. If not, but writing `:setf scala` does the job,
the ftdetect script is not installed correctly -- ask again in that
