CamelCase to under lined and vice versaEdit

Merge to VimTip1602. Actually the content in this tip is more useful because it converts an entire variable (supposedly) rather than just the first _ character, and provides a way to convert the other way. --Fritzophrenic 02:19, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Only 'camel case' tips are VimTip1016 and VimTip1602 which are already in 'see also'.
Merge to 1602: Converting variables to camelCase after renaming the target.
Please comment on possible titles for 1602: "Converting variables to or from camelCase" or "Converting variables to or from camel case" (matches 1016 Moving through camel case words). Need redirects CamelCase and Camel case. JohnBeckett 10:00, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
I merged it and renamed 1602 per my second suggestion (will use "CamelCase" in text of tip, but that and "camelCase" are too ugly in title). JohnBeckett 08:16, May 31, 2011 (UTC)
Good, you picked the title I was going to suggest. --Fritzophrenic 20:11, May 31, 2011 (UTC)

Create underlines, overlines, and strikethroughs using combining charactersEdit

Keep, and add as a See Also in Working with Unicode. Do we have a Unicode category? Or maybe it could go in an encodings category. --Fritzophrenic 02:19, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Keep. JohnBeckett 10:00, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

EP3 Syntax FileEdit

Keep. Honestly it should probably go on but I guess I'm not feeling very picky at the moment and we have a big backlog again. --Fritzophrenic 02:19, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Keep. JohnBeckett 10:00, May 30, 2011 (UTC)

Installing on SolarisEdit

Tentative keep. It seems overly complicated, especially since there is no compiling involved that I can see. Doesn't Solaris have a nice "make install" command that would work? Or does this method have some advantages in not downloading a bunch of development libraries or something? --Fritzophrenic 02:19, May 28, 2011 (UTC)

Keep, while groaning. Surely there is an easier method, or a procedure to build the current Vim version? At any rate we have no other tip mentioning "Solaris" and building or installing Vim. JohnBeckett 10:00, May 30, 2011 (UTC)
