I recently upgraded all the packages on my Cygwin (x64) install and since then, my VIM shows "m" at the start of some lines and around whitespace. (My guess is that it might be in places where escape codes are present for syntax highlighting)
(Googling for the issue seems impossible)
Sample file: (Showing that it is not a
gert@local ~ $file .vimrc;cat -A .vimrc .vimrc: ASCII text set mouse=$
mset mmouse= m~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ".vimrc" 1L, 11C 1,1 All
- mintty is used (Cygwin default?)
- TERM and mintty's setting is set to "xterm-256color"
- The "m" characters also appear around editing
set syntax=seems to help (Things like searches still have issues)
- VIM 8.0
- Cygwin version: 2.8.0(0.309/5/3)
Is there a way to get VIM back in a usable state, with colours.
This is in one of the vimrc files: (Possibly via this)
" Settings to try and get syntax working set nocompatible set nocp set backspace=indent,eol,start set term=xterm-256 set hlsearch set t_Co=8 set t_Sb=m set t_Sf=m
Removing the "t_Sb" and "t_Sf" settings gets rid of the "m"s but colours fails to work as well...
