      Hi I got the binary at
      which was recommended by vim.sf.net

      I am a complete Mac newbie and don't yet understand even the most basic
      concepts. I tried to follow the file system layout that was suggested
      and clicking on the desktop alias brings up vim.

      I can't drop my .py/.c files on the alias and have it edit them. I guess
      that this is probably some registration type problem, but don't know how
      to do anything about it.
