I was recently looking at a another users
.vimrc and noticed that they had settings which we commented as
secure, private editing; how does one accomplish this, and what do the settings in question mean?
I noticed one of them was
nobackup which seems to me to mean that you don't create that
~ file that always hangs around.
Note: you may want to port this over to the security stackexchange as well, they could probably use it over there.
