I want to rename my. ".vimrc" as "bob.vimrc"
And I want to put it inside "/Users/bob/bobs bits"
As you can tell, I'm on a Mac.
But everything keeps going wrong. I don't want a ".vimrc" symlink in ~, because bob wants all sorts of things in "bobs bits" in his folder - keys for vpns, encrypted text files etc, so he doesn't want the operating systems tentacles reaching into his stuff. He just wants to just move his "Bob's bits" to other systems.
Someone told me I could do: vim -u "/Users/bob/bobs bits/bob.vimrc" bobsnewfile. But his functions come out funny - vim types them out rather that executing them.
