v17.2, 28 June 2001
This document is a guide to quickly setting up the Vim color editor on Linux or Unix systems. The information here will improve the productivity of programmers because the
Vim editor supports syntax color highlighting and bold fonts, improving the
"readability" of program code. A programmer's productivity improves 2 to 3 times with a color editor like Vim.
The information in this document applies to all operating sytems where Vim works, such as Linux, Windows 95/NT, Apple Mac, IBM OSes, VMS, BeOS and all flavors of Unix like Solaris, HPUX, AIX, SCO, Sinix, BSD, Ultrix etc.. (it means almost all operating systems on this planet!)
