Description Steve Wills 1999-03-17 22:44:30 UTC
Summary says it all. Having this line in this vimrc causes
errors when using /usr/bin/cvim if /tmp/vim_backup doesn't
exist. Remove this line.

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-03-18 20:49:59 UTC
Doesn't cvim simply create the directory if it doesn't exist?

Comment 2 Steve Wills 1999-03-18 20:59:59 UTC
No. It says:

"filename" Cannot create backup file (use ! to override)

Comment 3 Erik Troan 1999-03-23 15:59:59 UTC
fixed in vim 5.3-6 -- I couldn't reproduce the error message, but
having that in the default vimrc is undoutedly wrong
