I have a vimrc file that does auto indent and ect. but if doesn't seem to be doing what I want it to do. When I do
vim ~/.vimrc then it shows that file is empty.
But if I go to my etc directory and do nano vimrc then following shows
GNU nano 4.4 vimrc " All system-wide defaults are set in $VIMRUNTIME/archlinux.vim (usually just " /usr/share/vim/vimfiles/archlinux.vim) and sourced by the call to :runtime " you can find below. If you wish to change any of those settings, you should " do it in this file (/etc/vimrc), since archlinux.vim will be overwritten " everytime an upgrade of the vim packages is performed. It is recommended to " make changes after sourcing archlinux.vim since it alters the value of the " 'compatible' option. " This line should not be removed as it ensures that various options are " properly set to work with the Vim-related packages. runtime! archlinux.vim " If you prefer the old-style vim functionalty, add 'runtime! vimrc_example.vim' " Or better yet, read /usr/share/vim/vim80/vimrc_example.vim or the vim manual " and configure vim to your own liking! " do not load defaults if ~/.vimrc is missing "let skip_defaults_vim=1 set tabstop=4 softtabstop=0 expandtab shiftwidth=4 set clipboard=unnamedplus set ignorecase set autoindent syntax on
I'm not sure why...
