i wonder if this is a case of a bad help file :) (there is a
discussion on vim@...
about that, hence the smiley)
anyway, it sort of is noted:
Marks are stored for each file separately. When a file
is read and 'viminfo' is non-empty, the marks for that
file are read from the viminfo file. NOTE:
i do see how one could miss it, since after doing :help
viminfo, you're taken to a screen, which goes on about what
the heck viminfo is, and not the option settings screen. you
first have to scroll some, and then jump to 'viminfo' tag.
alternatively, you could do :help 'viminfo' (with tick
in any case, the point of this email is that there are many
things that look very similar in the helpfiles, and to go
through them, a neat trick i learned form someone on the
list not that long ago, is to hit tab several times after
you type the beginning of a word. that way if you did :help
viminfo<TAB> it'd suggest 'viminfo', +viminfo, viminfo-file,
alternatively, you could do :help viminfo, then hist ctrl+d
which would then show all the matches at the same time. take
a look at :help cmdline-completion
vim has plenty of documentation, but you dont always know
what to look, so the above trick helps alot
