Fileformats (viminfo trouble)
- Over the weekend I spend some time in the debugger to fix a problem
with the viminfo file.
To fix this problem I had to remove some magic in the funktion
fgets_cr that handles the conversion between fileformats when
This removes a hack that enabled Vim to source files in DOS format
because this hack was overcorrecting when the file was in Unix
I would suggest to remove the ability to source DOS files and
document that as a feature.
The disadvantage is that it is no longer possible to share runtime
files in DOS format (e. g. with a Virtual PC installation).
Vim will still be able to *edit* DOS files.
If anyone is against this, please send your comment to the list,
otherwise I will send a patch to Bram over the easter/pesach break.
