    Hi. Maybe a codepage issue but I suspect a tagging issue. VIM fires up fine and text is readable; autoconvert is on. However, I get hex interpreted data in the midst of it. Control codes like colon work.

    I assume I buffaloed something along the way. Is it likely a mis-tagged file?

    Our system is running IBM-037; there’s some code in /etc/profile to set that up.
