Yeah. If you're not careful driving vim late at night, you might
accidentally write a webserver...

More seriously, here are some useful vim one-liners:

vim -ec 'runtime! syntax/2html.vim|wq!' foo.c
 -- generates foo.html with vim syntax highlighting

vim -ec 'set ff=unix|wq' blah.txt
 -- convert to unix line endings... equivalent to flip -u blah.txt

Writing scripts in vim isn't too hard. Nor is its syntax
highlighting format. Oh, and vimdiff rocks! :)
