1.1 What versions of Vim does this FAQ cover?

At the time of its creation, version 4.0 was almost complete (3.21 was already available) therefore the FAQ covers mainly vim4-specific issues. But some answers may apply to Vim 3.0. There are no plans to make the FAQ ``backward compatible''. ;-) In particular, in various parts of the FAQ, you will see mentions of ``:h subject'' to get help about a specific subject. Although the help command works in 3.0, you cannot give it an argument.

1.2 Who maintains this FAQ?

The current maintainer of this FAQ is Laurent Duperval. I can be reached at Please insert the keyword NOTSPAM in the Subject line of your message otherwise it may not reach me.

1.3 Why him?

Well, I volunteered. You could have done it too, had you volunteered before me. ;-) Besides, after getting so much free and useful stuff off the 'Net, I decided to give something back in the form of this FAQ.

1.4 Can I add to it?

Sure. Just send your questions (and answers!) to Comments and constructive criticism are always welcome.
