Vi and Vim Asked on January 1, 2022
Vim language highlighting has quit working only for one specific file.
I’ve been using Vim in WSL (Ubuntu) for several months now without problems. My PC is Windows 10 Professional. Strangely, Vim is no longer highlighting properly when I open a particular file.
Everything works fine with every other file, but if I open this one file, it does not display correctly. The syntax highlighting is gone. Line numbers, tabs, and end-of-file-tildes still follow the color scheme, but my actual code is simply colored white. Does anyone know how to fix this?
vimrcbefore the problem arose.
apt-get upgrade, followed by a restart.
Nothing I tried worked. Any ideas or insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Thanks for all the suggestions!
I found a bunch of files under
~/.vim/view/ which seemed to provide file-specific configurations for all my source files. So I deleted the one that linked to my problematic Verilog file. It regenerated when I reopened the source file in Vim. Everything displays correctly now. The problem must have been that an auto-generated config file got corrupted somehow.
