I'm trying to set a custom
breakat for plain text files. Aiming for a very small set of characters -- just hyphens, slashes, and whitespace. That means I need to add tabs, which I do by setting
At first, I didn't understand how control characters worked, and appended
I to my
breakat value. Naturally, as a result, my files started breaking at capital I's. -_-'
So then I went digging, and found this:
<C-v> followed by any control key should produce the literal control character. Great! Except it seems to work on all the control characters I've tried except
<C-i> (which prints a regular tab, rather than
^I with the special/bolded syntax highlighting I see for other literal control characters). What gives?
(I thought maybe it was because various plugins map
<C-i> to lots of things, so I moved my "bundle" folder elsewhere, reloaded vim, and tried again! Still no luck.)
If it helps/matters, I'm running gVim 7.4 on Windows. I also found this, but
<C-q><C-i> doesn't do it, either.
