README_vms.txt for version 7.3 of Vim: Vi IMproved.
This file explains the installation of Vim on VMS systems.
See "README.txt" in the runtime archive for information about Vim.
Most information can be found in the on-line documentation. Use ":help vms"
inside Vim. Or get the runtime files and read runtime/doc/os_vms.txt to find
out how to install and configure Vim with runtime files etc.
To compile Vim yourself you need three archives:
vim-X.X-rt.tar.gz runtime files
vim-X.X-src.tar.gz source files
vim-X.X-extra.tar.gz extra source files
Compilation is recommended, in order to make sure that the correct
libraries are used for your specific system. Read about compiling in
To use the binary version, you need one of these archives:
vim-XX-exe-ia64-gui.zip IA64 GUI/Motif executables
vim-XX-exe-ia64-gtk.zip IA64 GUI/GTK executables
vim-XX-exe-ia64-term.zip IA64 console executables
vim-XX-exe-axp-gui.zip Alpha GUI/Motif executables
vim-XX-exe-axp-gtk.zip Alpha GUI/GTK executables
vim-XX-exe-axp-term.zip Alpha console executables
vim-XX-exe-vax-gui.zip VAX GUI executables
vim-XX-exe-vax-term.zip VAX console executables
and of course
vim-XX-runtime.zip runtime files
The binary archives contain: vim.exe, ctags.exe, xxd.exe files,
but there are also prepared "deploy ready" archives:
vim-XX-ia64.zip GUI and console executables with runtime and
help files for IA64 systems
vim-XX-axp.zip GUI and console executables with runtime and
help files for Alpha systems
vim-XX-vax.zip GUI and console executables with runtime and
help files for VAX systems
GTK builds need LIBGTK library installed.
These executables and up to date patches for OpenVMS system are downloadable
from http://www.polarhome.com/vim/ or ftp://ftp.polarhome.com/pub/vim/
