Vim and compatible mode

If you like to run vim but seem to be finding that features like tabbing through filenames are not working you might be in compatible mode. I just compiled vim from scratch so that I could get an intel version and I noticed that it mentioned compatible mode on the intro screen. To turn it off permanently just create a .vimrc file in your home directory (if you already have one you won’t have the problem).
