vim – Verilog Mode – how to turn off colors for /* */ comments?

I am using vim to edit a customer’s Verilog libmap file and the syntax highlighting for multi-line comments is causing very odd color enabling/disabling. The problem is that the libmap is searching large numbers of files in multiple directories so there are lots of dir1/dir2/*/*/*/*/*.v searches and each /* turns on comment colors and each corresponding */ turns it back off, so with all of the libmap wildcard directories the comments are turning on and off and sometimes remain off on the next active line of code.
I just want to know how to define (undefine) comment colors in Verilog mode. I will leave colors on for single line comments (// comment) but disable them for multi-line comments (/* */), which I rarely use, or perhaps change multi-line comments to require a space after /*.
I have snooped around the syntax definition file but cannot spot how the comments are being handled.
I am hoping this is relatively easy to do.

development environment – Logical choice between VIM and Doom EMACS

I like the VIM Key bindings editing on VIM. I’ve researched online and found Doom Emacs EVIL mode can do “EVERYTHING” VIM can when it comes to writing code and productivity, plus more. Not really sure how accurate that is. If this is not true, then are the features not available in DOOM Emacs that is in VIM a deal breaker? I know Emacs is a whole ecosystem not just a text editor.

What are the reasons why I should choose VIM over Doom EMACS if Doom EMACS can do “Everything” VIM can.

All I want is a Dev environment for C, C++, Javascript and Python that boosts productivity and “lightwight”. At least lighter than VS Code, ATOM, Sublime Text or Notepad++.

No vim found, using vi

I’m on Fedora 33 Server. I’ve removed vi and installed vim-enhanced:

dnf remove vi
dnf install vim-enhanced

But I get this error on using vim command:

[root@localhost ~]# vim
No vim found, using vi, press ENTER to continue
-bash: vi: command not found
[root@localhost ~]#

This is how to my $PATH looks like:

[root@localhost ~]# echo $PATH
[root@localhost ~]#

Though /usr/bin path exists in $PATH, I’ve to explicitly write the path every time I need to execute vim command:

[root@localhost ~]# /usr/bin/vim

Please help me understand what is going on.

malware – Can I check the content of a suspicious file directly on the server using an editor, e.g. vim?

In order for the opening of the file to pose a risk, the file would need to include an exploit for the specific text editor you use. Then when you open the file, the exploit would trigger.

While possible that’s not very likely. It certainly isn’t common.

The far more likely threat is that there is malicious PHP code in the file that triggers when the file is executed by a PHP server.

But all that aside, I’m not sure why you are questioning whether you have been infected when you are looking at files being served that you did create and there are links to malware. You’ve been infected. Start with that assumption…

MacVim color scheme has the right color, but vim through Terminal doesn’t

I’ve installed color schemes that seem to be working well with MacVim.

When I run Vim using Terminal, however, the colors change and the color scheme doesn’t appear to be working anymore.

Is there a way to get it to support the true color the color schemes intend?

vimscript – Vim plugin Nudge Lines

I’ve published a Vim plugin that nudges visually selected lines up or down, which for the most part seems to function as designed. However, I believe there are likely ways that this plugin could be improved.


  • How do I register a movement that takes an optional amount?

In other words how can this plugin differentiate between Shift^J and 3Shift^J?


This plugin is tested on Linux based operating systems, but suggestions on how to make it OS agnostic are certainly welcomed; regardless Vim should be installed prior to using this plugin, eg…

sudo apt-get install vim


Source code is maintained on GitHub, as are the documentation files and Included within this question are the TLDR and source .vim script code files.

mkdir -vp ~/git/hub/vim-utilities

cd ~/git/hub/vim-utilities

git clone

If not utilizing some form of Vim plugin manager, then the script may be run on most ‘nix devices…


… which will symbolically link plugin scripts and documentation, and update Vim documentation tags.


After visually selecting a line, or range of lines, use the following keyboard shortcuts:

  • Ctrl^k Nudge visual selection up

  • Shift^K Nudge visual selection up and reformat tabs

  • Ctrl^j Nudge visual selection down

  • Shift^J Nudge visual selection down and reformat tabs

Source Code


#!/usr/bin/env vim

vnoremap <S-K> :call Nudge_Selection__Laterally(-1, 'reformat')<CR>
vnoremap <C-K> :call Nudge_Selection__Laterally(-1)<CR>

vnoremap <S-J> :call Nudge_Selection__Laterally(1, 'reformat')<CR>
vnoremap <C-J> :call Nudge_Selection__Laterally(1)<CR>

" Nudges visually selected lines up or down
" @param {number} a:amount - Signed integer of lines to nudge selection by
" @param {string()} a:0 - Optionally reformat tabs
" @example
"   :'<,'> call Nudge_Selection__Laterally(-1, 'reformat')
" @author S0AndS0
" @license AGPL-3.0
function! Nudge_Selection__Laterally(amount, ...) abort range
  let l:not_visual_mode = visualmode() != 'V'
  let l:at_limits__lower = a:lastline == line('$')
  let l:at_limits__upper = a:firstline == 1
  if l:not_visual_mode
   || (a:amount > 0 && l:at_limits__lower)
   || (a:amount < 0 && l:at_limits__upper)
    normal! gv

  if a:amount > 0
    let l:move_command = "'>+" . a:amount
  elseif a:amount < 0
    let l:move_command = "'<-" . (1 - a:amount)
    throw 'amount must be greater or less than 0'

  execute "'<,'>move " . l:move_command

  if a:0 == 0
    normal! gv
    normal! gv=gv

  silent! foldopen!

Side note, I’m not sure what’s going on with syntax highlighting here, but as of latest revisions this plugin seem to function without error.
