For questions about vimscript variables, their scopes, and usages.

Brief intro

Vimscript has variables (:h variables) and scopes (:h internal-variables) for use when programming vim. Most of their usage is via statements like let or execute.

See :help eval for more information.

Use this tag if...

  • you have questions about using variables
  • you have questions about scope rules

Do not use this tag if...

  • you have questions about programming languages other than vimscript (if you have questions about using a programming interface, like python, use e.g. )
  • you have questions about other definitions of the world variable (such as susceptible to variation)
