Re: Vim on Jag

} problems as it solves, I will not include it in future vimrc files.
One of the first things I did upon installing vim/macvim is to change the
line in the vimrc to set fileformats=unix,mac,dos and it has been working
just fine for my purposes. I don't know if it's ideal, but I haven't had
line-ending problems with anything. As a matter of fact, I set fileformats
the same on every system on which I use vim. There is no reason why it
shouldn't recognize any of the three line-ending schemes, and since the
first in the list is what new files use by default, I choose unix.
