On my system vim has a "defaults.vim" file that is getting sourced. For example, if I do vim --version, I see the following:
system vimrc file: "$VIM/vimrc" user vimrc file: "$HOME/.vimrc" 2nd user vimrc file: "~/.vim/vimrc" user exrc file: "$HOME/.exrc" defaults file: "$VIMRUNTIME/defaults.vim"
The problem is that the defaults file has a bunch of annoying settings in it. How can I disable it? I had read elsewhere that as long as I had a ~/.vimrc file that the defaults file would not be loaded, but this is not true. I have a blank ~/.vimrc and defaults is still getting loaded. How can I prevent this?
