For the life of me, I can't figure this out.
When using a browser (doesnt matter which), if I select text, then paste in Vim or Neovim, I see characters added to the beginning and end of my selection.
For example, I select "answer" from this page, then paste it over in Terminal I get:
??????answer?????? Saving this pasted data to file with .bin extension and then opening in Vim with this auto command helper:
augroup Binary au! au BufReadPre *.bin let &bin=1 au BufReadPost *.bin if &bin | %!xxd au BufReadPost *.bin set ft=xxd | endif au BufWritePre *.bin if &bin | %!xxd -r au BufWritePre *.bin endif au BufWritePost *.bin if &bin | %!xxd au BufWritePost *.bin set nomod | endif augroup END
I get this output:
0000000: fdbf bfb9 b083 616e 7377 6572 fdbf bfb9 ......answer.... 0000010: b083 0a ...
So, you can see that I get
fdbf bfb9 b083
added to the beginning, and I get
fdbf bfb9 b083
added to the end.
Any ideas on what this is about?
The only recent major change I can remember is upgrading OS X to Yosemite, so sure that's potentially a large update.
I suspect Terminal is the source of the issue. I've been able to use iTerm2 without this problem.
Also, I have tried to select "answer" from this page and then in both iTerm2 and Terminal I run this command:
which gives me
0000000 6e61 7773 7265 0000006
So, the clipboard has "answer" and pbpasting it in both iTerm2 and Terminal gives the same output, but cmd-V pasting into nano, stock vi (with -u NONE), MacVim (with -u NONE) and Neovim all give me a the ?????? displayed and then on save, encode the fdbf stuff into the file.
