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 annoying. Can anyone here help me install a more modern text editor? (And also help me become a little more proficient in solaris 8 :) ). Thank you.
