NAME

       vimtutor - the Vim tutor

SYNOPSIS

       vimtutor [-g] [language]

DESCRIPTION

       Vimtutor starts the Vim tutor.  It copies the tutor file first, so that it can be modified
       without changing the original file.

       The Vimtutor is useful for people that want to learn their first Vim commands.

       The optional argument -g starts vimtutor with gvim rather than vim, if the GUI version  of
       vim is available, or falls back to Vim if gvim is not found.

       The  optional [language] argument is the two-letter name of a language, like "it" or "es".
       If the [language] argument is missing, the language of the current locale  will  be  used.
       If  a tutor in this language is available, it will be used.  Otherwise the English version
       will be used.

       Vim is always started in Vi compatible mode.
