.SH SYNOPSIS

starts the
.B Vim
tutor.

the original file.
.PP
The
.B Vimtutor
is useful for people that want to learn their first

.PP
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.
.PP
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.

Otherwise the English version will be used.
