vi Filling up /var/tmp

by bitznbitez

Ever have one of those users who needs to vi large files on a system where the admin has made a small /var/tmp ?    I ran into that today.  

Add the following line to your ~/.exrc creating it if it doesn’t exit

set dir=/home/username/tmp

Ensuring of course that /home/username/tmp exists and replacing username with your users username of course :).    You can make this any filesystem/directory you wish so be creative.
