1.157.1. RHBA-2010:0685: bug fix update
Updated vim packages that resolve several issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
VIM (VIsual editor iMproved) is an updated and improved version of the vi editor.
* previously, when editing a script which contained the control character "\c", vim reported a syntax error. This was due to a incorrect "." after "c" in the regex for shSpecial. With this release, this issue is resolved and no syntax error appears. ( BZ#512265
* when running vim in ex mode, running comments previously returned an error at end-of-file. With this update, only empty lines return an error, not comments. ( BZ#572157
All users of vim are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
