                  VIM REFERENCE MANUAL    by Chi-Deok Hwang and Sung-Hyun Nam

Introduction                                    hangul
It is to input hangul, the Korean language, with VIM GUI version.
If you have a XIM program, you can use another +xim feature.
Basically, it is for anybody who has no XIM program.

Next is a basic option.  You can add any other configure option. 

   ./configure --with-x --enable-multibyte --enable-hangulinput \

And you should check feature.h.  If +hangul_input feature is enabled
by configure, you can select more options such as keyboard type, 2 bulsik
or 3 bulsik.  You can find keywords like next in there. 

        #define ESC_CHG_TO_ENG_MODE
        /* #define X_LOCALE */

Environment variables
You should set LANG variable to Korean locale such as ko, ko_KR.eucKR
or ko_KR.UTF-8.
If you set LC_ALL variable, it should be set to Korean locale also.

VIM resource
You may want to set 'encoding' and 'fileencodings'.
Next are examples: 

        :set encoding=euc-kr
        :set encoding=utf-8
        :set fileencodings=ucs-bom,utf-8,cp949,euc-kr,latin1

You can change keyboard type (2 bulsik or 3 bulsik) using VIM_KEYBOARD
or HANGUL_KEYBOARD_TYPE environment variables.  For sh, just do (2 bulsik): 

    export VIM_KEYBOARD="2"

If both are set, VIM_KEYBOARD has higher priority.

Hangul Fonts
If you use GTK version of GVIM, you should set 'guifont' and 'guifontwide'.
For example: 
    set guifont=Courier\ 12
    set guifontwide=NanumGothicCoding\ 12

If you use Motif or Athena version of GVIM, you should set 'guifontset' in
your vimrc.  You can set fontset in the .Xdefaults file.

    set guifontset=english_font,hangul_font

    Vim.font: english_font

    ! Nexts are for hangul menu with Athena
    *international: True
    Vim*fontSet: english_font,hangul_font

    ! Nexts are for hangul menu with Motif
    *international: True
    Vim*fontList: english_font;hangul_font:

attention! the , (comma) or ; (semicolon)

And there should be no ':set guifont'.  If it exists, then Gvim ignores
':set guifontset'.  It means VIM runs without fontset supporting.
So, you can see only English.  Hangul does not be correctly displayed.

After 'fontset' feature is enabled, VIM does not allow using english
font only in 'font' setting for syntax.
For example, if you use 
   :set guifontset=eng_font,your_font
in your .gvimrc, then you should do for syntax 
   :hi Comment guifg=Cyan font=another_eng_font,another_your_font
If you just do 
   :hi Comment font=another_eng_font
then you can see a error message.  Be careful!

hangul_font width should be twice than english_font width.

Unsupported Feature
We don't support Johab font.
We don't support Hanja input.
And We don't have any plan to support them.

If you really need such features, you can use console version of VIM with a
capable terminal emulator.
