Automatically reload files with mixed line-endings in DOS fileformatEdit

I'm obviously biased, but keep this one. Actually if we fast-track it, it would make a decent feature tip for June in a few days. --Fritzophrenic 02:30, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Good tip, although a little nerve racking for my taste. I'll assign a tip id before June if you like (or you do it). I haven't yet mastered the code, but it looks sound. (I have removed my previous comment because I have realised what I was missing: the substitute uses the n flag so no change occurs.)
If you get a chance to check over the other new tip pages, I can probably process June to October! JohnBeckett 11:02, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
I have made this VimTip1662 and have processed June, July and September. To do: August and the other tips shown on this (October) page. JohnBeckett 09:59, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

Jump between methods in C++Edit

Renamed from "Jump to next/previous method in C++"

Looks useful, keep. --Fritzophrenic 02:30, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

I suppose a merge to 641 Highlighting of method names in the definition is not appropriate? Therefore, keep. JohnBeckett 11:02, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, probably not. Perhaps a see also would be good though. --Fritzophrenic 20:03, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

Switching between different versions of Vim on WindowsEdit

Keep, looks useful. The junction stuff is pretty cool too. Should also mention my method...keep a batch file to set all your associations in one go (very useful if you install on multiple machines, too). When you update Vim, you just need to do a :%s command in the .bat file to update all the paths and re-run it. --Fritzophrenic 02:30, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

I suppose we should keep this, although it doesn't help much (it does not say how to create a junction or how to delete it). I suspect that links like these might cause trouble for Windows users from time to time, and I'm sure some better way of handling the issue is possible (I do something much simpler, although I need to look it up when it is infrequently needed). At any rate, advice on upgrading Vim in Windows can be here. JohnBeckett 11:02, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
