 Problem is windows. :) When I want to do a readfile I have to name paths like that : c:\\my\ path\ with\ spaces\\mySubPath And it makes me doing double of writing work. It is a little annoying. :) -- You received this message from the "vim_use" maillist. Do not top-post! Type your reply below the text you are replying to.
