Loading... please wait.
  • Is that "~file" or "file~"? the default backupext for vim is "~".
    • I know that, but the weird thing is that the filename is just a plain tilde... could it be that vim was opened without any arguments? but then again, that would result in a .swp file, right? Just ~ ... nothing more...
      • Actually this happens to me quite a bit. Remember that ~ is the shortcut to your home directory so :w ~/blah.foo

        will write to blah.foo in your home directory.

        Now if you type as fast as I do you pinky tends to hover over the enter key and not over the ;
