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.

FILES
       /usr/local/share/vim/vim80/tutor/tutor[.language]
		      The Vimtutor text	file(s).

       /usr/local/share/vim/vim80/tutor/tutor.vim
		      The Vim script used to copy the Vimtutor text file.

AUTHOR
       The  Vimtutor  was  originally  written for Vi by Michael C. Pierce and
       Robert K. Ware, Colorado	 School	 of  Mines  using  ideas  supplied  by
       Charles	Smith,	Colorado  State	 University.  E-mail: bware@mines.col-
       orado.edu.
       It was modified for Vim by Bram Moolenaar.  For the names of the	trans-
       lators see the tutor files.
