Hi, I'm trying to customise vi by writing a few commands in .exrc file 
in my home directory, but whenever I start vi those commands do not take 
place. Could someone plese tell me what I am doing wrong.

PS. I've read the man pages etc, but can't figure out what the problem 
is :-(

roman$ cat $HOME/.exrc
set wraplen=80
set showmode
roman$ vi


running vi, "set wraplen=80" and "set showmode" have not been set :-(
