Question will it break system's files?


Hi,all,i seted the encoding of vim in order to display chinese well.Because when i opened source files programed by myslfe,the chinese can't display well.My locale is zh_CN.UTF-8,here is the contents of .vimrc:
let &termencoding=&encoding
set fileencodings=utf-8,gbk,ucs-bom,cp936
After this ,will it break the system files when i edit the system files by vim?

Hi.

No, it shouldn't do anything bad - western 'normal' characters are the same in UTF-8 as they are in 8 bit ASCII, so editing config files shouldn't be a problem.
