I am the proverbial "accidental" programmer. I have found that I really like Perl and programming so I am pursuing that route now. I am the Debian systems administrator and junior Perl programmer for a company called Inspire.

How I compiled Vim7 for OSX Tiger

[ #32226 ]

I just did this to keep my Vim7 patched. I started out with the binary built at

Then I do this:

cd /usr/local/src
svn co

cd vim7/src ./configure \
--enable-perlinterp \
--enable-pythoninterp \
--enable-tclinterp --with-tclsh=tclsh8.4 \
--enable-rubyinterp \
--enable-multibyte \
--enable-cscope \
--with-features=huge \

make test
sudo make install (this will install in /Applications)

I then rename the original binary and copy the new one into /Applications/vim70

When patches come out:

cd /usr/local/src/vim7
svn update
make test
make install

Move everything again...and I am up-to-date.
