Vim 6.3 - Color Scheme

Hi there,

I installed vim 6.3 on Solaris 9. I'm unable to get syntax highlighting and color coding work.

Any suggestions on how I proceed with this ?

Cheers !

ok..I tried works when I set the TERM variable to xterm-color

But if I make the setting permanent it affects my normal working environment. Is there a way to change the TERM environment variable for vim only ?
catchmeifuwantAuthor Commented:
managed to do it using a .bash_profile

function vi()
( TERM=xterm-color; vim $* )
