I'm writing a sml program (a weird functional programming language) and I'm alerting my
.vimrc file. However, my changes don't seem to be taking effect to my files. I can make the changes to
.vimrc and then go to my sml file and type (
gg =G) to try to format, but the changes don't seem to be taking effect. For instance, I'm trying to change the size of an indent with the following lines:
set tabstop=150 set shiftwidth=150 set expandtab
and I'm trying to set the textwidth with
set textwidth=20 (the 20 is just a test number).
Why isn't my
.vimrc file working? I believe it's in the correct location (my
Here's my entire
.vimrc file for your consideration.
