39667Starting gvim without GUI
- Apr 26, 2005Hi All,
So I've the following problem:
My system has vim complied (without GUI, and normal feature list) in
/usr/bin/vim. It also has vim compliled (with GUI, huge features, perl
python etc) in /usr/bin/gvim. On the rare occasion I need to use one the
perl/python interface, I have to use gvim. But I *don't* want to start
the GUI. Is there any way I can do this?
"vim -g" will start the gui. However there is no corresponding option to
"not start" the GUI if the program name is gvim. I can ofcourse put a
symlink called "vim-huge" in my ~/bin directory pointing to
/usr/bin/gvim. But I'd like to avoid that ... (and hoping a command line
option will be added to acomplish this task).
Thanks in advance.
Time is not wasted if you are wasted all the time.
