YNT: [Vim-vms] .vimrc

Check the Record Format of your SYS$LOGIN:.vimrc

It should be something similar to mine, atleast it should have the 
Stream_LF format.
Check the 'Record format' and the 'Record attributes'.

Delete any previous occurrences of the 'SYS$LOGIN:.vimrc;*' files and
create a new one with VIM.

Make sure you have the 'unix' file-format. Press <ESC> and push the ':' 
key which then
gives you a prompt and there you write the folloing
     set ff=unix

Enter append mode 'a', write your favorite attributes into the file i.e.
     set autoindent<ENTER>
     set expandtab<ENTER>

and save your new SYS$LOGIN:.vimrc

     [home]> dir sys$login:.vimrc /full

     Directory ....

     .VIMRC;5                      File ID:  (...)

     Total of 1 file, 1/35 blocks.

Mine contains the following:

let Tlist_Ctags_Cmd = "mc vim:ctags.exe"
map <S-Left> :bn<CR>
map <S-Right> :bp<CR>

Hope it helps. If it doesn't reply with info containing the exact
file-record format and file attributes.
