1st half of one of my scripts

tar -xvf vim-7.2.tar.bz2
cd vim72
patch -Np1 -i ../vim-7.2-fixes-5.patch
echo '#define SYS_VIMRC_FILE "/etc/vimrc"' >> src/feature.h
./configure --prefix=/usr --enable-multibyte
make test

2nd half of the script for the vim app

cd vim72
make install
ln -sv vim /usr/bin/vi
for L in  /usr/share/man/{,*/}man1/vim.1; do
    ln -sv vim.1 $(dirname $L)/vi.1
ln -sv ../vim/vim72/doc /usr/share/doc/vim-7.2
cat > /etc/vimrc << "EOF"
" Begin /etc/vimrc

set nocompatible
set backspace=2
syntax on
if (&term == "iterm") || (&term == "putty")
  set background=dark

" End /etc/vimrc
cd ..
rm -rf vim72

I copied these commands straight off the pages of the book and put
them in shell scripts and ran the scripts.
