comment How to assign Vim's showbreak a value locally to a buffer?
'showbreak' is a plain option, not an internal variable. You're just using the :let &... syntax to modify it; :set would work just as well.

comment Is it able to only allow yanked content went to clipboard, meanwhile deleted content doesn't? [vim]
No, that's certainly not how you would do it! There's an example at :h g@; you can also look at my RepeatableYank plugin.

I think you just got false positives from those.

comment Make vimdiff display different lines as different lines (not partially different)
I interpreted the problem in a way that there should be a threshold for "similarity", so that 99%-differing lines should not be marked as changed, but 10%-differing still are. This is what your proposed solution doesn't achieve (and which indeed would require source code changes).

You can also just do :hi! link DiffChange DiffText. But isn't this solution just papering over the problem?

comment vi commandline, goto line and column
It matters for non-ASCII characters, which are represented by more than one byte. Also, a Tab and control characters usually occupy more than one display column.

comment vi commandline, goto line and column
cursor() uses byte index for the column, but it's usually a character count.

comment Vim mappings stop working
Have you changed terminals or previously used GVIM? Not all key combinations are handled in terminal Vim; <S-CR> and <C-CR> mostly don't work there.

comment Adding color scheme to Vim
Your answer doesn't add anything that isn't already in mine.

comment How do you track down why a Vim plugin does not work?
For that, it probably defines an :autocmd VimEnter *. Is this defined? Does it appear in the log file?

You've submitted (and then withdrew) the same imprecise question already on SO. Just repeating it here won't make it better...

comment View .deb package files in vim
Can't you just install the dpkg tool and use said plugin?

Probably a plugin defining some signs.

@sam Then the plugin (and its dependencies) hasn't been properly installed.

comment How do I change the colour of text matching a regex in vim?
@Gnouc: mark.vim supports Vim 7.2, 7.3, and also 7.4. The version given on vim.org is the lowest supported one!

comment Can you further integrate and present sequential moreutils vipe command output in vim using successive splits etc?
You're right, it's just a concept, not a complete solution. With more than two invocations in the pipeline, that is probably much more complex. I wonder whether it isn't sufficient to just manually :write! save-pipe, followed by :pedit save-pipe whenever you need it?!

comment Can you further integrate and present sequential moreutils vipe command output in vim using successive splits etc?
The temp file is created by vipe (using something like mktemp()), and that filename is passed to Vim, I suppose.

comment Where should xt.vim be put on osX?
Commands that start with : are given in Vim; if you're new to Vim, try vimtutor (in the shell), or any of the many Internet resources, e.g. vimcasts.org

comment Where should xt.vim be put on osX?
You don't need to copy them; Vim looks in both locations (see :h 'runtimepath'). I would recommend looking for a newer Vim package (if available); Vim 7.2 is from 2008!
