7OS/2 version of Vim 4.6b available
- Feb 27, 1997A new OS/2 version is available. Please pick it up and test it if you
Note: there's been a fix for the following situation:
- bash or tcsh or similar is used as command interpreter instead
of the plain OS/2 CMD.EXE.
- Value of environment variable is something like c:/tmp
- In Vim, do something like ":r !ls". This gives the error message
"Can't read file c:/tmp\voa01729", and a file c:/tmpvoa01729 is
created instead of what was expected.
The problem was that Vim added the standard backslash as path
separator. That got eaten somewhere between the system() function
call and actually executing the shell.
I've fixed this by inspecting the base of the temporary file, looking
for a forward slash. If found, use a forward slash, else use the
regular OS/2 backslash.
This seems to work fine for me, but I'd appreciate it if you try it
out (and try to break it :-). It should be available in the normal
places; it's called "vim46bos2.zip" despite it being subtlely
different from the distributed 4.6b source code.
