This is in gVim on Windows.
NERDTree is registering
./ links in every directory. By the
-> I thought perhaps they were shortcuts/symlinks that got added to all my directories, however in the Windows file explorer I see nothing to point to that case. I could hit Shift+i to hide them, but I like to be able to see dot files.
I also recently installed mysysgit, which install adds a some Unix tools to the path. I've always done this on Windows systems without adverse effects, but I wasn't using gVim & NERDTree before. Perhaps in adding the Unix tools it did something funny to allow
cd ../ and such in the Windows prompts? On my Debian system NERDTree doesn't do this.
I'm rather new to Vim and NERDTree and don't I usually work in Windows, so I'm all sorts of lost.
EDIT: to clarify, I'm trying to hide these.
EDIT Again: I tried fiddling with
let NERDTreeIgnore=[...] to no avail.
EDIT Once More: I can't answer my own question for another 7-ish hours because this a new account but I did find the answer and it was in fact
The following does what I was hoping for
let NERDTreeIgnore=['\.\.$', '\.$', '\~$']
'\~$' is a seperate regex to ignore the 'tilda-d' backup files generated by Vim, e.g.
