I recent created a .vimrc file in my home directory because in addition to syntax highlighting and auto indention I also wanted my tabs to be four columns wide and to be tabs and not spaces but now that I have my file setup I am unable to use backspace to remove a newline. When I start backspacing a line the cursor stops at the beginning of the line and will not delete the line move to the end of the line above. Any ideas?

Hello, I used to use Code::blocks and eclipse for code editing, but started to find them slow. I started searching for lightweight IDE's and found that the prevailing opinion is that if you are looking for lightweight code creation you should use vim/emacs, gcc and the other gnu utilities. I started doing this on my linux box and found it wonderful. Then I sat down in front of my windows computer, installed the [core utils](http://www.gnu.org/software/coreutils/), created a custom cmd with batch and installed vim for windows. My cmd: @echo off rem Set the title title LABinux rem Set the text …

Hello, I recently started using vim, and decided it was about time to check out some plugins. I am still not very familiar, so my problems could be related to that fact!

I do not believe it is just surround that isnt functioning, as I do not see the powerline displayed either. I have confirmed that i have nerdtree, and its safe to say I have …

Hey guys, I wasn't exactly sure where to put this post, but this was my best guess: I'm on a HPC and wanted to use vim as a python IDE and was trying to install my own version of vim (7.3) with a python interpreter. I use configure to enable pythoninterp but then I get a checking Python version... 2.6 checking Python is 1.4 or better... yep checking Python's install prefix... /usr checking Python's execution prefix... /usr checking Python's configuration directory... can't find it! Is this because it doesn't have the proper permissions to change something in /usr? I was …

I have recently started using VIM for writing java code so I'm still getting use to the things i can do with it. I'm having trouble compelling the file directly in vim. I would like to have it so i can use :compile to compile the programs and then it would print the errors in a split window. Here is my current .vimrc file.
