How to set vim as default cscope editor?

Just make sure that your .vimrc is at the same location as .bashrc. And then in .bashrc, add the following line:

export CSCOPE_EDITOR=vim

This worked for me.

    cscope opens my files in vi. Is there a way to change it so that it opens files in vim instead ?

    Edit: I tried:

    export CSCOPE_EDITOR=vim
    

    For some weird reason, if I type :help on the file opened, it shows vim help which indicates it is opened in vim but it doesn't seem to read my .vimrc. How can I make it read my .vimrc ?

    Edit 2: Machine/tool info
