Support Global IME
I made a experimental patch for supporting Global IME on Vim for
Windows. Global IME makes capability to input Chinese, Japanese, and
Korean text into Vim buffer on any language version of Windows 98,
Windows 95, and Windows NT 4.0. Please see below URL for detail of
Global IME. You can also find various language version of Global IME at
- Global IME detailed information.
In this patch, there is one of new files "dimm.idl". This file is
distributed by MSDN (Microsoft). I did not modify this file, but you
can get original at below URL.
- Where you can probably get "dimm.idl".
You can compile Vim with Global IME. Example:
nmake -f Makefile.w32 GUI=yes GIME=yes
I place a compiled binary by above command at next URL. If you want to
test Global IME instantly, please download this.
- Compiled binary for test
I have tested this binary on thus environments.
- Windows 98 (Japanese version)
- Internet Exproler 5.01
- Global IME 5.01 for Chinese (Simplified) - with Language pack
- :set fe=prc gfn=MS_Song:h12
- Active Input Method Manager (Global IME)
I made this patch from 5.6.70 source. So it is too big to append with
this mail, I place this patch here.

I welcome any questions or comments. Thanks.

Global IME on my Japanese Windows95, I'm not sure but it
seems working well. The language version Global IME
couldn't be installed when the language of Global IME and
the language of Windows are the same.
E.g. Japanese Global IME couldn't be installed on
I really love this. Thanks Muraoka-san!
