<DELETED LONG DRAFT OF MAIL>
Well, apparently I mistyped something before, and
USER_DISK:\[USER.ENGELBARTS.BIN.VIM.VIM58\]doc/*.txt set ft=help
actually does the trick!
I now have syntax hilighting in vim help files!
Thanks, Benji and Jürgen!
Now I only have just one tiny little wish left:
Is it possible to express this in generic $VIM or $VIMRUNTIME terms (VIM: &
VIMRUNTIME: on VMS), so I can put it in our central vimrc. file?
I guess that's something for the vim-vms list, though.
