I didn't use VIM directly on the Pandora in the last years, the one from "opkg", but I found out that the default syntaxes are wrong for the current version (7.2).

You can find syntax files for the 7.2 version here:


INSTRUCTIONS:

1) Extract this folder from the archive: "vim72/runtime/syntax/"
2) Put all the extracted files inside the folder "~/.vim/syntax/"

This command can do the job in a sigle run.
Code:
tar -xvjf vim-7.2.tar.bz2 -C ~/.vim/syntax/ --wildcards 'vim72/runtime/syntax/*.vim' --strip-components 3

Now the editor will use the correct files.

WARNING:
If Vim is used from some PND package most probably will not use the system HOME folder, and in that case the path where to put the files could be different.

That's obviously required to use highlight.

But the syntax files in the "/usr/share/vim" folder contains commands not known by the 7.2 version.

This is just an extract while sourcing "sh.vim", but it's almost the same for all the other syntaxes in the folder.
Code:

and so on....

EDIT:
I added more instructions in the first post.
