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.
