set sm turns on the blinking of matching parens
as you type the close parenthesis.
% when the cursor is on a parenthesis will
move the cursor to
the matching parenthesis.
:set . The
modes you are interested in are:
set ai turns on auto-indentation. This means that each
line you type will match the previous line's indentation.
set lisp turns on lisp mode. This means the indenting
is done as required by Lisp.
setenv EXINIT 'map # Ji^M^[|set wm=6 para=lpppipnpbp sect=shuh showmatch ai'
or by defining in your .cshrc file an alias command for vi (in the example
shown here is
li ) that includes
all the modes you want when using lisp:
alias li "vi '+set ic lisp ai wm=0 |map # Ji^M^[ |1' \!*"
You can also set the modes after you are in vi by typing
:set ai lisp
