vi without encrypt



  • Normally vim has some encrypt feature to store the resulting file only readable with some key provided:

    $ vim -x testfile
    Warning: Using a weak encryption method; see :help 'cm'
    Enter encryption key: ***
    Enter same key again: ***
    ...
    $ file testfile  
    testfile: Vim encrypted file data
    

    The vi in our UBT (which is also a vim) does not have this feature compiled in. The flag -x is unknown as it says.

    Why?



  • @guru said in vi without encrypt:

    Why?

    It's only in a full VIM install, which is not in the UT rootfs. You can install it in libertine if you want to use a full VIM.
