I am using vimdiff to compare three files side by side. How do I enable word wrap inside all three splits without having to switch to each and issue :set wrap three times? I would rather not have word wrap enabled by default though.

To clarify, you are looking to have a command apply to multiple buffers without setting it as the default? – viking Jul 6 '11 at 21:27

I think I found the answer: :windo. – mike Jul 6 '11 at 21:43
@mike: That's the answer I was going to post, but I suggest you post it so you can get the karma. – Heptite Jul 6 '11 at 23:09
