Vim Carbon binary available
- Vim-Mac friends:
I have compiled and uploaded a binary of vim compiled for OS X with
the Carbon GUI. *** I have not tested this much at all! *** You can
get it from my i-disk (which I have just created):
I packaged the binary with tar and gzip. I assume you know where to get
the runtime files.
1. I compiled a "huge" version, but I could not figure out how to
include +perl. I tried editing feature.h and Makefile, to no avail.
2. I tried to put in my name in the "Compiled by" slot, but it did not
seem to work. Maybe I am editing the wrong Makefile?
3. The terminal version, according to :version, uses
/usr/local/share/vim as a "fall-back" setting for $VIM. Where is this
set, for terminal and Carbon versions?
The Mac "Developer Tools" include a PackageBuilder.app, so I would
like to use this to package the binaries together with the runtime
files, and perhaps write a simple installation script. I need to decide
where to install these. Any advice will be appreciated. In fact, if
you succeed in installing the binary in, say, the Applications folder,
please let me know how you set $VIM (or whatever you do) so that vim can
find the runtime files.
If I can figure out how to do this, I would like to post a package
version some time next week.
