VIM syntax highlighting on SecureCRT

My SecureCRT terminal window wasn’t displaying ANSI colors which was really annoying me. To be honest I dislike procrastination and finally I have enabled ANSI colors:)

In Ubuntu installing “vim” package is sufficient I suppose. In other distributions you may have to install supplementary packages. Here are the possible steps;

1) Set your terminal to xterm or linux if xterm does not work

2) On SecureCRT


3) Open a file and see if highlighting is on

4) If not, type the command inside the vim editor.

if you can see the highlighting, then add “syntax on” to your .vimrc file under your home directory to make it permanent. According to SecureCRT article, you can also add the followings to your .vimrc file
