Hello People,
I don't know if this is the right place to make this question. If not, just
tell me.
Well I am trying to use vim to edit octave (.m) files.
I want to highlight the syntax of octave on vim. With that objective in mind
I followed the instructions
given on the page: "";
Yet, it didn't work. It does not highlight anything at all.

Information that I can provide you is:
