I think the misconception that $(( ... )) is a bashism is caused by the wrong highlighting defaults chosen by vim. To fix this add this to ~/.vimrc let g:is_posix = 1 That will also allow you to use the $(command) POSIX construct. BTW, the vim syntax maintainers don't agree with changing this default: http://groups.google.com/group/vim_dev/browse_thread/thread/41139a32772b2f5f cheers, Pádraig. -- To unsubscribe from this list: send the line "unsubscribe linux-embedded" in the body of a message to majord...@vger.kernel.org More majordomo info at http://vger.kernel.org/majordomo-info.html
