Last night, when I tried to write a new file
hello.cpp, I got the
"hello.cpp" 8L, 105C Loading libclang failed, completion won't be available.

To avoid problems, I didn’t set Vim global variable
I didn’t know whether
.1 should be appended to the end of
libclang.so. Finally, I didn’t do so, and the plugin just
