README_extra.txt for version 7.3a of Vim: Vi IMproved. The extra archive of Vim is to be used in combination with the source archive (vim-7.2-src.tar.gz). The extra archive is useless without it. For more information, see the "README.txt" file that comes with the runtime archive (vim-7.2-rt.tar.gz). To be able to run Vim you MUST get the runtime archive too! The extra archive plus the source and runtime archives make up the complete sources of Vim for all systems.
