Anyway, if you got v121 via a vimball from vim.sf.net, then it includes
doc/pi_netrw.txt . That's the helpfile for v121; the
/usr/local/share/... one is then out-of-date. The UseVimball command
embedded in the vimball extracts the help to the first directory on
your runtimepath; that's ~/.vim/doc/pi_netrw.txt, typically. Vimball
also runs helptags (which generates ~/.vim/doc/tags) automatically. So
the text and plugin should end up in ~/.vim/plugin, ~/.vim/autoload, and
(help) in ~/.vim/doc , and v121 help for netrw should be available as
soon as you source the vimball.
:NetrwClean will remove all the netrw files from your local plugins
:NetrwClean! will also attempt to remove netrw files from
The .VimballRecord file is what enables vimball's :RmVimball command.
Since you deleted it, vimball can no longer remove anything previously
installed with vimball.
