I work with files for which I want to specify some alternate settings. Here is
a snippet from my .vilerc file:

If I open a C file vile performs syntax highlighting as expected. When
I open a .pr later and switch back to the C file highlighting in the C file is
disabled. I thought from the help documentation that the hl setting was local
to the buffer if specified?

It should local - I can reproduce this. Probably what is happening is that the read-hook is using the $highlight value from before the buffer switching action.

I hadn't noticed this particular case (and it might be fixable) but was aware of the case where vile's macro buffers won't automatically be colored until one does it manually, e.g., using ^X-q (essentially a
problem due to the order of evaluating things versus painting)

I'll investigate and see what might be done to improve things.

I'm using 9.8e but I believe it happened with 9.7 as well.
