I'm sorry if my title seems vague. I wasn't sure how to make a succinct title.

I have 2 questions:

1) For tab movement in vim, when I map ctrl+pgup to ctrl+p and ctrl+pgdown to ctrl+n, it works fine moving between tabs but each time I move from a tab to different tabs and come back to said tab, the cursor moves one space to the right (it goes to the next line if it meets the end of the line) The mapping looks like this in my .vimrc file

map ^N ^[[6;5~ 
map ^P ^[[5;5~ 

2) I want to check if the colorscheme is a certain one and if so then do sth. eg I want to do this:

if &colorscheme == desert256
    highlight String ctermfg=217 ctermbg=235

ps: I originally asked this question on stackoverflow but someone told me to ask here so...

  1. You probably have a trailing space at the end of the line. Check for example by searching for:

  2. Try this:

    if g:colors_name == "theme_name"
        <do something>

    note: colorscheme is not a variable and "desert256" must be inside quotes.

Thanks. It works now. Can you explain what the first thing (\s.\+*$) does (like what each thing means)? – user26825 Feb 1 '10 at 13:51
Sorry, there was an error. The search pattern (\s\+$) searches for at least one (\+) whitespace character (\s) followed by the end of line ($). See :help regexp for more info. – mrucci Feb 1 '10 at 14:03
