If you use vim for your editing, put this in your .vimrc file:

Excellent Chris, I put them into my /etc/vim/vimrc.local file along with the following useful mods:

map <F10> :set paste<CR>

:map <F11> :set nopaste<CR>

:imap <F10> <C-O>:set paste<CR>

:imap <F11> <nop>

:set pastetoggle=<F11>

" Added this setting for swp file location, so as not to adjust

" date/times of actual directory holding the file(s) being edited

" reference: http://www.vim.org/tips/tip.php?tip_id=20

" - this works even if the working directory is writeable..

set directory=/vim-temporary-swp-files

Now I want to find some more gems like this... you have inspired me.

Kind Regards
