Re: Asking for help with adding commands (programs).


You need to run setup.exe again and select packages such as "vim" and
"more". Actually you should try using "less" instead of "more" since it
has more features, such as being able to move back as well as forward.
I usually just select the "man" package, which automatically selects
dependencies such as "less". 

As for Japanese support, you might try this page:

Unfortunately with my 8-yr.-old's reading level of Japanese I can't tell
you whether it works, but I'm sure you'll have better luck.
