[vim-mac] Re: vim on MacOS with multi-byte available?
- Dear VimMac developpers,
Thank you very much for making vim for MacOS, and thank you, Mr. Sven
Guckes, for replying very promptly. Before the vim I requested is
compiled, I would like to ask another options (if it is possible).
In my previous mail, I requested the following two options:
These two options are quite important for non-English support. Added
to this, I would like to ask the following two options.
+langmap (or HAVE_LANGMAP); around line 70 of feature.h
something equivalent to --enable-xim (i.e., control on Macintosh Input
The +langmap option is also very important when we *input* non-English
languages. Namely, when going into insert mode, the language input
method is turned on, and when going back, off.
The latter two is my hope that vim on Macintosh will support them in
the future. I think you need subtle code change to achieve them, so I
do not insist on them very much. But if they can be done very easily,
I want them quite much. (When these features are available, I think I
can read my e-mails perfectly on my PowerBook...)
Thank you in advance.
