NOTE: The |+hangul_input| feature is scheduled to be removed.  If you want to
keep it, please send a message to the Vim user maillist.


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.

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

   ./configure --with-x --enable-multibyte --enable-fontset --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 HANGUL_DEFAULT_KEYBOARD 2
	#define ESC_CHG_TO_ENG_MODE
	/* #define X_LOCALE */
	/* #define SLOW_XSERVER */

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

VIM resource
------------
You should add nexts to your global vimrc ($HOME/.vimrc). >

	:set fileencoding=korea

Keyboard
--------
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"
or >
    export HANGUL_KEYBOARD_TYPE="2"

If both are set, VIM_KEYBOARD has higher priority.

Hangul Fonts
------------
You can set text font using $HOME/.Xdefaults or in your gvimrc file.
But to use Hangul, you should set 'guifontset' in your vimrc.

$HOME/.Xdefaults: >
    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:

$HOME/.gvimrc: >
    set guifontset=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 'font'.
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 GOOD error message.  Be careful!

hangul_font width should be twice than english_font width.

Unsupported Feature
-------------------
Johab font not yet supported.  And I don't have any plan.
If you really want to use johab font, you can use the
hanguldraw.c in gau package.

Hanja input not yet supported.  And I don't have any plan.
If you really want to input hanja, just use VIM with hanterm.
