(has("iconv") == 0) if it cannot establish contact with _any_ iconv.dll
so the other ":if" branch will be followed, and ":set fileencodings?"
(not ":fileencodings" which returns an error) will display a different
That 'fileencodings' setting makes me wonder:
- Shouldn't it start with "ucs-bom" to detect those Unicode files which
have a BOM?
- Can "ascii" give a fail signal (doesn't Vim treat it as an alias for
"latin1")? -- If it can, then it's OK there, but otherwise not.
- What is "ucs-2-internal"? Won't it be detected as "utf-16" (which is a
superset of UCS-2) by the "utf-16" entry three steps earlier?
- Why is "utf-16" mentioned twice? (The second entry does no harm, but
will never be used.)
- Won't you ever receive UCS-2/UTF-16 files in little-endian ordering
(which is standard on Intel ix86 and therefore on Windows)?
If everybody minded their own business, the world would go
around a deal faster.
