Re: VIM 6.2 enabling arabic is vague

This thread should only really exist on the 'general' list (post follow-ups
there, please).  I'm opting to send a copy of the reply here in case there
are others interested (I hope everyone on this list is also subscribed to
both the 'announce' and the 'general' lists).

Please don't cross post; a single email should only be destined to
a single list.

The necessary info is available here


as well as within Vim-6.2+ proper by doing,

  :help Arabic
  :help arabic

As noted all the necessary documentation is within Vim.  You can always
start by simply doing ':help' and surfing your way to the right area.

Hope that helps & Salam.
