HP-UX B.11.23 U ia64 0069082867

Hello,
I'm not a unix administrator, I simply test with unix.  
This HP-UX has the ksh
There some handy unix setups that I would like to have.
I would like to be able to have "history" set.  I believe the "Esc Tab" should work but it does not.  I am able to do histfile=500, but I can't get the history on commands.

I would would like to have vim.  I now only have vi and I do not like it as much as I like vim.

In vi I would like to have the "searched" word "highlighted, so I need to know how to set that.
I found nohl, but is there a yeshl ???

Where is the .vimrc file?

thanks

I know that the .vimrc is in one's home directory, yet could there be one for multiple user logins?  We have several "needed" user logins, which we need to use depending on the purpose.

jools, I was hoping simply to download the vim software with a simple expansion of the tar file.  Following your suggestion;  I tried the hg command on my HP-UX (which I would think it would have), but it did not work.  Do I need to install Mercurial  into my HP-UX?
It appear so.  Where would I find it?  I am now at; http://www.vim.org/mercurial.php and will search for an hg installation.
Can you register on the link I posted? It should give you access to the depot file.

jools, I did register.  I will look at it again to see what I missed.  Now I know why the Admin did not jump to install it, when I asked why that server did not have it.
Might you know about the ksh history settings for the HP-UX?
What setting do you have in mind?

To all, this is my direction now.  Instead of installing vim, I find that installing bash would get me vim as well.  So I ask; Is the tar file at this link http://hpux.connect.org.uk/hppd/cgi-bin/wwwtar?/hpux/Shells/bash-4.2.039/bash-4.2.039-src-11.11.tar.gz+bash-4.2.039/HPUX.Install+text
the binaries to simply install bash or would I have to compile this code?

I would hope that I could simply install bash and not have to compile it.

The version of HP-UX we have is ia64 1062901774   I am told that possibly I can find and download a compiled version of bash and then installed it, without needing to comply it.  So, I ask; where might a safe website with this binary be?  Do you know the url?

Internet and yes are not acceptable answers  :)
