I am getting the following error when trying to :SudoWrite without a filename:

    Cannot write file. Please enter filename for writing!
    Error detected while processing function SudoEdit#SudoDo..SudoEdit#LocalSettings:
    line   13:
    E499: Empty file name for '%' or '#', only works with ":p:h": ^Isil e! %

I will submit a fix shortly.

@blueyed blueyed added a commit to blueyed/SudoEdit.vim that referenced this issue Dec 6, 2011
@blueyed blueyed Do not call LocalSettings without having a filename.
Fixes #7.

Thanks! I'll look into it.


commit 15d93a9 should have fixed it


No, this happens on line 62 with the sil e! %.

Just try it:
1. vi<enter>
2. ifoo<esc>
3. :SudoWrite<enter>


Should work now with commit 90e1efe


Yes, this looks better.
