Manual page on vim (
$ man vim) states:
view Start in read-only mode. You will be protected from writing the files. Can also be done with the "-R" argument.
But, they have major differences.
When starting vim as
vim -R the syntax coloring works.
But when started as
view syntax coloring doesn't work.
view doesn't support vertical splitting, I tried
-O command line option.
view have a separate config? Or maybe it is completely separate from vim itself?
