Why modline is not available?

Peng Yu
Hi, I have the following modline in a .sh file. It works in machine A,
but on machine B. (All .vimrc, .vim/ are the same on both machines.)

# vim: set noexpandtab tabstop=2:

Vim on machine B is of the following version. Does anybody know why
modline is not working on machine B?

~$ vim --version

It appears that 'modeline' is set "on" on machine A but "off" on
machine B.  It defaults to "on" for normal users and "off" for root.
My guess is that it is being set to 'nomodeline' in your
distribution's system vimrc.

You appear to be running a Debian-based distribution.  Debian's vim
package includes /usr/share/vim/vimrc, which sources
$VIMRUNTIME/debian.vim, which contains

    set nomodeline

The solution is to put

    set modeline

somewhere in your ~/.vimrc.

Note that Fedora, for example, does not set nomodeline.

Gary
