- Subject: Installing VIM installs lots of other stuff
I am wondering why installing VIm installs so many other things: After doing a default install of Cgwin, and then not finding VIm, I added VIM to the install as well, but found it greatly increased my Cygwin install as follows.
Dependencies listed to be installed:
After vi install: 439 M, 19349 files, 1941 folders
Before vi install: 275 M, 11602 files, 921 folders.
Change to get vim: 164 M, 7747 files, 1020 folders
%Change to get vim: +60%M, 66.7%files, +110% folders
So, my Cygwin gets 60% bigger just to install VIm?
