Welcome to Ron's Home for the Developmentally Challenged, where you will find Win32 binaries of the development versions of vim for those who cannot or do not want to compile it for themselves. If you have no idea what vim is, you should probably look at the main vim site. If you want to compile for yourself, you can do what I do, and get the mingw compiler for Windows and the "unix" and "extra" and "lang" sources from the beta vim site.
They have been compressed with the wonderful UPX compressor; this saves disk space and download time, but you can just run them as-is like any other program. They have not been compiled with the perl, python or ruby interfaces. If you want to use any of these interfaces, you will have to install the appropriate scripting language and build vim yourself. I no longer compile with support for these interfaces, because I never use them, and the vim internal language is very powerful already -- learn to use it!
If you care about editing Unicode or other non-English text, you will want to download the "ICONV" library below as well. Just put it on your PATH somewhere.
In order to get the best use of these programs, you should
install the runtime files,
|GUI vim||gvim.exe (6.0aq)||2001-08-06|
|Console vim||vim.exe (6.0aq)||2001-08-06|
|ICONV library||iconv.dll (1.6)||2001-05-24|
|My scripts||Ron's scripts||2001-07-23|
