How to Disable VIM matching parenthesis highlighting

Posted on Monday May 30, 2011 by Eric Potvin

VIM (or VI) is a powerful tool that allow developer to create or update code. But there's something I found annoying in this tool: "Matching parenthesis". Matching parenthesis can be very useful when you edit file, but if you don't like it how can you get rid of it?

First, open your vimrc file:

vi ~/.vimrc

and simply add the following code in your vimrc file:

let g:loaded_matchparen=1

Now open your file again! Enjoy ;)
