VIMTUTOR(1)                                                        VIMTUTOR(1)



NAME
       vimtutor - the Vim tutor

SYNOPSIS
       vimtutor [-g] [language]
       gvimtutor

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  avail-
       able, it will be used.  Otherwise the English version will be used.

       Vim is always started in Vi compatible mode.
