You seem to simply have an unpatched version of vim, otherwise the
:version command or the
--version parameter would list the patches on the second line. For example on my machine it says:
VIM - Vi IMproved 7.4 (2013 Aug 10, compiled Sep 10 2014 09:36:33)
Included patches: 1-207, 209-355, 357-430
This is "patchlevel" 430, but it skips patches 208 & 356.
Vim doesn't have a "minor version number" beyond major.minor; although I believe that some distributions may use the "patchlevel" as such.
As shown above, not all patches may be included, so if you want to use this value you can't just check if a number is higher than a certain version.
Usually, the best way is to use
has("patch-7.4-399"); this will return true if:
- We're running Vim 7.4 with patch 399 included.
- We're running Vim 7.5 or later.
You can also use the form of
has('patch399'), which is typically used like:
if v:version == 704 && has('patch399')
But be aware; this will be false for Vim 7.5; use this only in very specific cases.
:help feature-list for some more information.
I can't find a way to list all the included patches, other than redirecting
:version and parsing that ... I'm also not sure how this would be useful anyway, as
has() should be enough :-)
