Description of problem:
According to the vim manpage
-x Use encryption when writing files. Will
prompt for a crypt key.
but when I try to do that:
$ vi -x JF
VIM - Vi IMproved 5.7 (2000 Jun 24, compiled Jan 31 2001 06:11:07)
Unknown option: "-x"
More info with: "vim -h"
Seems the program and its manpage really ought to agree on what is
or is not supported :)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Verify manpage contents by "man vim"
2. Enter "vim -x JF" at a shell prompt
3. See error message.
vi == vim-minimal == vim without any features.
Install the vim-enhanced package and invoke it as vim (or "alias vi=vim").
