.elvisrc for elvis 2.2_0

Wednesday, 04/03/2009 ≅20:39 ©brainycat

I had to build my own binaries to enable syntax highlighting for elvis 2.2_0 on Slackware 12.2. My SlackBuild, info and package are available. Note that my package has three bugs:
You will need to symlink /usr/bin/vi to /usr/bin/elvis:

#ln -s /usr/bin/elvis /usr/bin/vi

You will need to add ELVISPATH="/usr/share/elvis" to your .bashrc, .bash_profile or /etc/profile
:help does not find the html help files.
