11.3.5 Vim configuration

In order to use all Vim features and syntax highlighting, include the following lines in ~/.vimrc or /etc/vimrc:

     set nocompatible
     set nopaste
     set pastetoggle=<f11>
     syn on

Paste mode enables one to avoid autoindent interfering with cut-and-paste operations on a console terminal. It does more than just a simple ":set noai".

See Using GnuPG with Vim, Section 14.4.2 for GnuPG integration.
