I've finally learned what 'upward compatible' means. It means we get to keep all our old mistakes.

to get this working on you cygwin install do this:
1. start cygwin (cygwin.bat or something to that effect)
2. create a .vim directory in your $HOME
2a. create a .vimrc file in your $HOME
3. unzip the snipmate.zip in that such that all the subdirs are under .vim/
4. put the following line in your .vimrc file you created earlier:
filetype plugin on
5. restart Vim
NOTE: you're doing 2a. to make sure your Vim starts in 'nocompatible' mode as the snipmate plugin won't work in VI compatibility mode which was default in my Cygwin install.
HTH those who are trying this on a cygwin on XP setup.

I love to read science books. They make my day and I get ideas for awesome blog posts, such as Busy Beaver, On Functors, Recursive Regular Expressions and many others.
Take a look at my Amazon wish list, if you're curious about what I have planned reading next, and want to surprise me. :)
