NetBeans Knows When You've Been Using Vim Again :-|
By seapegasus on Mar 02, 2010
You know the problem: You're updating a PHP script, press a wrong button, and instead of something obvious like ESC:w! you accidentally type ESC:q!. HAPPENS ALL THE TIME. If you can't shake the habit of using vim, that is. \*sigh\* Bah. It's not like NetBeans sees me using other editors and starts moping about it, right? "Go ahead, use vim, see if I care..." As if. So I browse man vim to check my recovery options... Aah, here we go:
VIM(1) VIM(1) NAME vim - Vi IMproved, a programmers text editor ... -n No swap file will be used. Recovery after a crash will be impossible. -nb Become an editor server for NetBeans. See the docs for details. -r List swap files, with information about using them for recovery. ...
Hold on a second. \*scrolls back\* NetBeans! You? Here? \*blush\* OK, OK, I'm going to reactivate the jvi plugin, and I'll use the File History now, really!! =-|
PS: Haha, why does the German localization of this line say "YOU become an editor server for NetBeans"? A Soviet Russia joke waiting to be made? :-D
