Description Dave Jones 2005-12-15 22:01:29 UTC
vim foo.c
(assume foo.c doesn't exist)

a new buffer is opened with this..

 *        Filename:  foo.c
 *     Description:
 *         Version:  1.0
 *         Created:  12/15/2005 05:02:18 PM EST
 *        Revision:  none
 *        Compiler:  gcc
 *          Author:  read README.csupport to learn how to set defaults (),
 *         Company:

Please disable this feature by default, and have users have to enable it in
.vimrc, (as was previous behaviour) instead of making every user have to decode
the documentation (after a 10 minute search I gave up trying to find out how to
disable it), and change their .vimrc's.

for the timebeing, adding

let g:C_Version=47

to .vimrc reverts to the old behaviour.

Comment 2 Karsten Hopp 2005-12-20 12:02:21 UTC
I've disabled the templates in vim-6.4.004-2
