Re: [tlug] vi and Japanese

Hi, all.

I recently subscribed TLUG ML.
I'm interested in Linux and also English.
I started to study English lately.
But now, my English is so poor !!!
I might speak rude English. If you find it, please stand me.

I try to answer a following question.

The answer is possible.
I know 3 vi which can use Japanese, nvi, jvim and jelvis.

I always use jvim included Vine(one of the Japanese distributions).
You can find jvim as following URL:

I'm sorry. I couldn't find English web sites.

jvim must use Canna(KANA KANJI convert system).
If Canna isn't working on your HP box, you install Canna first.

In a different way, if your telnet terminal can pass 8bit characters,
you can use Japanse input system like IME on Windows of a client.
But, vi on HP box muse be Japanese edition vi.

Anymay, you have to install Japanese edition vi.
