vim --cmd ':set paste'

Eli the Bearded
If I use "vim --cmd ':set paste' filetoedit" when one of the
exrc files[*] will "set autoindent", then I find autoindent is
in effect when I start to edit.

Tested with:

VIM - Vi IMproved 7.2 (2008 Aug 9, compiled Feb 17 2012 10:24:10)
Included patches: 1-411

VIM - Vi IMproved 8.1 (2018 May 18, compiled Sep 12 2018 12:55:00)
Included patches: 1-216

If I check ":set" then it shows paste is on, and with showmode I
see "-- INSERT (paste) --", but it's not working how I expect "paste"
to work.

This is a bug, right? Or an unexpected (to me) problem with enabling
autoindent after enabling paste?

[*] Or vimrc.

Elijah

It is unexpected at least. But the same happens when manually running
`:set autoindent` after having set paste mode. I am not sure we should
really disallow setting all those affected options if paste mode has
been set.


Best,
