http://unix.stackexchange.com – At my new job, they want me to use a solaris 8 operating system, but all my coding experience has been on linux. Linux had a lot of tools built into the system, but it seems like the solaris I'm using is extremely stripped down. I was wondering if someone can tell me how to install vim or emacs (preferably emacs) on solaris 8. I tried google but I couldn't find any download links for solaris 8. I tried using vi, but it's a little annoying to use after using vim and emacs (I can't even get the editor to backspace correctly!). Also, there is no syntax highlighting in vi which is a little annoyi (HowTos)
