comment Is it possible to connect to the local Windows shell with PuTTY?
I actually need to use PuTTY itself. I have a special fork of it I compiled. With hardcoded keybindings and stuff in it. Thanks for the comment though.

comment Lift Vim undo-tree file size limit?
As for Git having no file size limits, the fact that hashing >1GB of code takes a few minutes makes it impractical. It's not impractical if the codebase is separated sanely, but that ship obviously had sailed. Perforce's new stuff that incorporates Git into the system sounds like a promising direction for them.

Well that wasn't a workflow that existed at our operation, so I couldn't do that. Merging and branching on centralized VCS's are never worth the trouble for local changes of this sort, in my experience. But you are right at the end of the day, relying on Vim to track history is not a good way to go. However, surely you must agree that it being capable of doing it is an admirable property for an editor to have.

@KyleStrand Yeah, couldn't use git there, though. Codebase too large to fit in git. And I can't really branch with perforce. Maybe make a few shelvelists. But that sucks and is not as nice as a git branch. My actual solution to things like that was to run git on top of p4.

yep that's gotta be it, on account of 2776 and 1774 (i must have made 2 phantom edits). Thanks for the tip! comments need a "make this an answer" button.

Yes. I have been retroactively loading up the vim revisions and inserting them into a git repo. We use p4 because the codebase is too big and interconnected for git to deal with it effectively, but tracking individual files manually using git works very well
