VIM is a replacement for the VI editor. It contains many new features and enhancements to the original.
The binary file(s) below only contain the minimum binary distribution. For the full featured VIM you should also download the run-time, distribution which contains documentation and sample files. You should be able to find the latest run time files at www.vim.org

Put the archive "vim-5.4-bin-solaris2.6-x86.tar.gz" in the root directory, gunzip the file by typing, "gunzip -d vim-5.4-bin-solaris2.6-x86.tar.gz" to create "vim-5.4-bin-solaris2.6-X86.tar"
then untar that file using
"tar -xvf vim-5.4-bin-solaris2.6-X86.tar".
