What vim does it differently when -b is enabled?

Hi,

`man vim` says the following. But I am not sure what exact -b does.

-b          Binary mode.  A few options will be set that makes it
possible to edit a binary or executable file.

Could anybody help explain this and provide a minimal binary file that
shows the difference between with -b and without -b? Thanks.

VIM License Clarification: How does the license mean to interact with configs, plugins, etc?

Greetings Vim Users,

I have a question about the license at http://vimdoc.sourceforge.net/htmldoc/uganda.html.

http://vimhelp.appspot.com/if_lua.txt.html
http://vimhelp.appspot.com/if_pyth.txt.html
http://vimhelp.appspot.com/if_ruby.txt.html

Does / could scripting with viml, if_lua if_pyth trigger the II section in the VIM license?

There are a lot of superb plugins on vim.org and elsewhere that are licensed MIT, BSD and Apache. Among them,
they utilize vimscript. Some of them further extend vim's functionality through import vim's lua, ruby
or python libraries.

Is there any case where the Uganda license would conflict with MIT/BSD/Apache-licensed configs?

Can anything be done to strengthen the language that plugins, configuration, scripts do (or don't) fall
under an "extended" version of vim?

vim with Windows developments under linux and git

I have the usual problems with ^M and some other ones in these cases.

I vant to use vim to develop Windows   apps under linux (building in 
some Windows VM), with vim under linux.
I do not want to get rid of ^M, I want to keep all my files in some 
specialized directory in Windows format managed by git and vim.

Is there somewhere an howto  for "good practices", particularly to set 
vimrc ?

And, cerise sur le gateau, vim should remain correct for normal linux 
files...

Thanks
PC

macvim for Yosemite?


Hi All,

I have been using Macvim on my old Powerpc mac for some time now, no problems. My wife bought me a newish mac
mini running Yosemite OS X. In looking to see if there is a version of Macvim that runs on this, i seem to be
getting conflicting reports. So i ask you the community, does any one know if there is a build for Macvim
that runs ok under Yosemite?

Thanks,

Russ

Increase system process calling replacing :system("process") by libcall method

Hi all,

I have seen that it can be possible to replace :system("sys_process") by libcall(gvimext.dll, "sys_process").

Is one of you have ever tried it and got an example please ?
Thank you

Set highlight colours according to screen

My local laptop monitor is....shall we say, "different" from an external 
monitor.  I find that I have to adjust the screen colours.  However, I 
switch between the native monitor and an external monitor a lot.  In vim, 
is there a way to check whether the monitor os the local one or not?  I can 
then use that conditional test to set the appropriate colour.

Leftover characters on screen when typing during long-running commands

This has been driving me crazy for a while, so I found a way to reproduce it with no plugins whatsoever:

:map <silent> ;l :let tmp=system('sleep 1')<CR>

Now edit anywhere in your document, type ; and follow with l long-pressed. Your screen is now littered with
'l's until you hit C-l. Naturally this is a toy example - a more practical case is when you use the git-gutter
plugin and trying to do something while it's processing, or any other similar plugin that runs external programs.

Other than hitting C-l once in a while, or liberally sprinkling :redraw! commands in plugins, is there
anything to do about this?
