NAME
       vimtutor - the Vim tutor

SYNOPSIS
       vimtutor [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 [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.
