Dos16 version Can be used on any MS-DOS system, only uses up to 640
memory. Also runs on OS/2, Windows 95, and NT. Excludes some
Vim-specific features (autocommands, syntax highlighting,
etc.). Recommended for use on pre-386 machines.
Dos32 version Requires 386 processor and a |DPMI| driver, uses all
available memory. Supports long file names and the Windows
clipboard, but NOT on Windows NT. Recommended for MS-DOS,
Windows 3.1 and Windows 95.
There are also two versions that run under Windows:
Win32 version Requires Windows 95 or Windows NT, uses all available
memory, supports long file names, etc. Has some problems on
Windows 95. Recommended for Windows NT. See |os_win32.txt|
Win32 GUI Requirements like the Win32 version, but runs in its own
window, instead of a console. Has scrollbars, menu, etc.
Recommended for Windows 95 and Windows NT. See |gui-w32|.
I am not particularly privy to using a DPMI driver is I can help it. It
has always being unstable for me.
