This text editor FAQ is incredibly useful. I've been using gvim for a few
months now, and it makes editing do files much more pleasant and a lot

I was wondering if some user would be kind enough to share his _gvimrc
file with the list. This is a list of commands in this are executed when
the GUI is started. I've been adding features (see my own file below), but
I feel there are many I don't even imagine that would be useful,
especially with Stata. In particular, is there a way to run the do file as
some sort of ex command?

Thank you in advance.
