I just installed Vim 7.4 on my MacBook using Homebrew. When I enter
vim on the command line, it successfully enters Vim 7.4, but when I use
vi I still get the old 7.3.
To install Vim 7.4 I used this command:
brew install vim --override-system-vi
When I do which:
$ which vi /usr/local/bin/vi
When I execute this path in my shell
/usr/local/bin/vi it does open 7.4. So I thought it might be an alias, but
alias vi didn't find anything.
I'm quite puzzled by this and I have no idea why this happens. Does anyone know why this might be happening and how to fix it? I could of course make an alias of
vim but I wonder why it works the way it does right now.
