When using gvim 7.3, I can select a word by typing v and then w. The word selected does not include the punctuation after the word. When using vim 7.2 on Linux, selecting a word by typing v and then w also selects the following punctuation.
For example with this text and the cursor at the beginning of the line: clk : in On Windows, v w y o esc p produces clk : in clk On Linux, v w y o esc p produces clk : in clk :
Note the extra colon on Linux
Why is this? How can I make VIM on Linux behave like gvim on Windows (or vice-versa)?
