I tried to use the command given on the vim.sf.net site to update Windows
rsync -avzcP --delete ftp.nluug.nl::Vim/runtime/dos/ .
It seems to work fine, but the result directory doesn't have spell directory at
all. Is it bug or feature?
As Bram said earlier, the runtime/dos directory on the ftp site doesn't
contain any spell files. With --delete, it will delete in the target directory
tree whatever it doesn't find in the source tree.
If you download the full sources (unix+lang+extra) to some directory (let's
say %HOME%\build\vim) creating there a tree starting at vim70, you can then
maintain the runtime files (including the spell files) as follows (in Cygwin
rsync -avzcP --delete --exclude="\dos\" ftp.nluug.nl::Vim/runtime ./runtime
You will get runtime files with Unix ends-of-lines, but Vim-for-Windows can
cope with that (provided that 'fileformats' includes "unix", which is the
default), and so does WordPad. Notepad can't swallow them but I guess you can
live with that.
Show respect for age. Drink good Scotch for a change.
