comment Vim inserting white spaces after accentuations and other special characters on Mac
Does it happen when you invoke vim this way: vim -u NONE -U NONE --noplugin -N

comment Forward slash got mapped to Oo in vim
Typing ":map /" and pressing enter should show you all mappings starting with a slash.

comment How do I make vim not beep when autoinserting new lines?
My best guess is that it has to do with the 'showmatch' option, which issues a beep if a closing bracket/parenthesis is used without a matching opening bracket. For various reasons, some plugins that auto-insert this kind of thing insert the closing bracket first, then adds the opening bracket.

comment How to change key binding for backward search in VIM?
I either use PuTTY, or Cygwin's Mintty and ssh.

This is definitely not normal Vim behavior. What does :verbose imap ? show?

comment Display soft hyphens in VIM
It works for me in Windows. If I go into insert mode and press control-v then type u00ad I get what looks like a version of a dash character. (I can't seem to paste it here.)

comment Recompile vim with the same features
How long ago did you compile it? Is it possible the command would be in your shell's history file? Otherwise, yes, you are going to have to recover the configuration options by hand.

comment mapping command mode on iPad
I was able to try testing it on my iTouch. So far I can't make it work no matter what I do. Looks like a bug, which isn't surprising considering how much the people who ported Vim had to do to make it work.

That is very strange. What does the output of :scriptnames and :verbose imap ii show?

If it were .exrc, the : would be required, but for .vimrc the : is optional.

comment How to let xchat play a sound when someone send me messages?
We need much more detail. What sound are you using? Is it a wav file? MP3? OGG? Does X-Chat support the format you're trying to use? Did you specify the full path to the sound file? Is the file readable?

comment let mapleader = “\<Space>” not working arch linux
@FDinoff: Odd. I couldn't get any mappings with a leading space to work until I restarted Vim. Looks like I found a hard to reproduce bug.

comment let mapleader = “\<Space>” not working arch linux
I don't think mappings can start with a space. I certainly haven't been able to get it to work.

comment Why is ~/.vimrc not having an effect until I type “:so~/.vimrc”?
Yes, session files are loaded after .vimrc and tend to include all the settings necessary to return Vim to the same state it was in when the session file was created. This will override your .vimrc preferences.

comment Why is ~/.vimrc not having an effect until I type “:so~/.vimrc”?
The :verbose command works for showing where mappings were defined as well. Check to see what mappings you have that start with control-t and where they were set: :verbose map <c-t>

comment Can I recover a deleted file from .swp after auto-reloading?
There's only one answer that suggests that, and it contradicts itself. It needs to be reworded. And an undo file also does not contain the entire file contents. You may be able to recover some data by creating a blank file with the old filename and "recovering" it but you'll never get all of it.

comment Can I recover a deleted file from .swp after auto-reloading?
It is wrong to assume the full file contents exists in a .swp file. The unfortunate reality is that it does not. To slightly over-simplify, a Vim .swp file only contains the necessary information to "rebuild" the changes in the file since the last write. If the original file is gone, not enough information exists for the .swp file to be effective.
