      Hi all,

      I discovered two typos in the Vim FAQ (which I've started going over for
      enlightenment) and I was told that its maintainer is active here:

      1. On 10.10 ":set whichwrap+=" should be ":set whichwrap+=>".

      2.

      {{{
      10.8. How do I scroll two or more buffers simultaneously?

      You can set the "scrollbind" option for each of the buffer to scroll them
      simultaneously.
      }}}

      s/buffer/buffers/ . And a comma may be in order.

      Regards,

      Shlomi Fish

      Hi, ... I will update the FAQ to fix these errors. Thanks for reporting them. I used to regularly update the text version of the FAQ long ago (6 years ago).

        I used to regularly update the text version of the FAQ long ago (6 years ago).
        The text version used to be at http://www.geocities.com/yegappan/vim_faq.txt.
        The text version was converted to the html version nightly by a script and
        uploaded to the VimDoc site.

        Now Yahoo has discontinued the geocities service. I couldn't find a proper
        place for the text version of the Vim FAQ. So the FAQ is no longer updated.

        Last year I thought about moving the FAQ pages to the Vim Wiki site.
        But that didn't happen. As the FAQ is a big document, we need to split
        it into multiple wiki pages (one per section?).

          Sorry that I abandoned that project (well, technically, it is
          still on my TODO list so it is not actually abandoned).

          Major problems of putting the FAQ on the wiki include:
          - The size, and working out how to split it up (doable).
          - The formatting (very hard to convert to wikitext).
          - The duplication with some tips (awkward maintenance).

          In the end, I could not think of any improvement on the current
          situation of having a single text file that a keen person can
          download (as pure text) and view/search within Vim.

          If you wanted somewhere to host the download, perhaps the
          "Files" section shown at the following could be used:
          http://groups.google.com/group/vim_use

          And/or, the "Pages" section could hold the html version.

          Due to spam problems, we had to restrict file changes to
          managers only, but there is sure to be a way to accommodate that
          if you wanted.

            Splitting a FAQ into multiple pages is a bad idea, because people often want
            to search it for keywords using their browser/editor/etc. search function and
            splitting it into several sections hinders it. Finding a hosting for the FAQ's
            text file (and resultant HTML) is not such a big problem to require us to
            resort to splitting it across multiple pages. See:

              Agreed. Someone also needs to modify the existing FAQ file to use
              the wiki syntax.

              Can this conversion be done automatically? Previously this conversion
              used to be performed by a script running on the SourceForge server.

                Please don't split it. How about submitting the FAQ to Bram for
                inclusion into the Vim runtime files? I already got:

                ~$ ls ~/.vim/doc/*faq*

                but don't know when I got it, ah here:

                Pretty old. I'd like an updated version.

                  The FAQ is not updated much; I have a 2 January 2005 version.

                    No, there is nothing automatic. The Files section is to hold
                    files that people can download, and the Pages section is for web
                    pages. It has a rather klunky interface, but I can paste simple
                    html into it. I imagine that css is out of the question, so we
                    are stuck with whatever style Google has made available. Again,
                    I would have to get the html from somewhere and upload it.

                    Is there anything wrong with sourceforge.net/htmldoc apart from
                    your desire to get other people involved in maintenance of the FAQ?

                          Then you should make sure you escape the ">" properly as ">" during the
                          conversion.

                            Hi Yegappan,

                            I found another typo:

                            {{{
                            12.10. How do I delete all the lines in a file that does not contain a
                            pattern?
                            }}}

                            Since "lines" it plural "that does not" should be "that do not". The same typo
                            also appears in the following paragraph.

                                  I know that github.com support markdown (i.e. if you have a README if
                                  markdown syntax its get rendered as html). But don't know how large it
                                  can be.

                                          Regarding the issue of converting to HTML and hosting, how about using
                                          the script I'm using at http://vimhelp.appspot.com? (See my thread
                                          about that.) It's a Python script which converts from the vim help
                                          format to HTML. It's still evolving; I'm eventually going to put it up
                                          on github.

                                          In fact, it would perhaps make some sense to host the FAQ at
                                          vimhelp.appspot.com together with the official help files, so that it
                                          can contain links to to them. And if the FAQ is hosted at github, then
                                          I can regularly pull in the latest changes via cronjob, just like I'm
                                          already doing for the official help files. Just a thought...

                                            I have setup a github repository at http://github.com/chrisbra/vim_faq
                                            which includes the faq (plus the mentioned fixes in this thread, plus
                                            some questions, that were recently asked on vim-use).

                                            And while I was creating the repository I went ahead and made a plugin,
                                            that can be downloaded from

                                            the faq in vim help format

                                            Anybody that wants to have access, please notify me. I can give you
                                            access to the repository.
