bug-fixed vim?

John Doe-4
The official vim contains bugs. Antoine provides a
bug-fixed version but vim.exe within the archive is
password-protected. How can I obtain a fixed vim.exe
w/o recompiling myself?

- The archives I put together are NOT password-protected AFAICT. Is anyone
else seeing this problem?

- Are you talking about 6.3 or 7.00aa ?


Best regards,

The problem happens with my XP SP2 default zip
unpacker. There's no problems on my other humble ME
machine with 7zip installed.

I pack them on XP SP2 using WinZip (the "evaluation" version is free, it
reminds me that it is X days overdue whenever I start it but otherwise it
works). I'm using "maximum (portable)" compression which is slightly less
than the maximum possible compression. I guess the "default" unpacker is
just not powerful enough.

Best regards,
Tony.

Well, I deeply appreciate your posting of the
bug-fixed vim binaries as w/o bug-fixes vim is almost
unusuable for me on XP. If you should ever grow
dissatisfied with WinZip, maybe switch to 7zip? :P

:-) If I do, I will think of it. Thanks for the appreciation.

Happy Vimming,
Tony.

Just for a complete record.  I have had no trouble extracting files from
vim-6.3.086.zip in my Windows XP SP2 zipper.

And I think the Info-ZIP command-line zip/unzip is good for developer
use.  Apart from the fact that they are completely free, they have
support for extended timestamp/extended NT attributes.  If I zip some
new files here with WinZIP or XP zipper and send the file to the list,
many people will find the file in the future because of the time zone
difference.  However, if both sides use Info-ZIP, this problem will not
occur and the file timestamp will be the true GMT converted to local
time, i.e. 10:00 +0800 will correctly become 03:00 +0100 or so.

I personally use the Win32 version available at

  http://unxutils.sourceforge.net/
