LLE10110 : Howto disable the standard creation of swap files in vim (and enable them again)


You do not want to have those files with .swp files in your directories




The following directive, which should be added in the system-wide or user-specific “vimrc” file, disables the creation creation of a swap file.

set noswapfil

You can enable it again with

set swapfile

You can also set these interactively. In this case you add a : in front of them. If you are not shure, you can type part of it and use the Tab key. Vim will list all the possibilities for you.
