Back up Lists and Dictionaries to viminfo[]

  • Tip was originally Automatically Saving Lists to File and was renamed July 23, 2013.
  • While it's not entirely satisfactory to have a tip on something that is not often needed and which is supported to a "good enough" extent in newer Vim versions, we've put this off long enough so I think the tip should be kept. JohnBeckett (talk) 09:23, July 28, 2013 (UTC)
Agree. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 15:19, July 29, 2013 (UTC)



Keep, but expand a little. I think Marc Weber's git-based "wiki" has some info we could borrow. Way too many people use plugin managers for us not to have a tip on them. Even I've started using Pathogen. --Fritzophrenic (talk) 15:19, July 29, 2013 (UTC)
