Adapted From

Most new users can get through it in less than one hour. The result is that you can use simple regular expressions using the Vim editor.

:VimRegexTutor

The :VimRegextutor command will open a new tab containing an editable copy of the tutorial. Have at it!

Old School

regextutor is a file that contains the tutorial lessons. You can simply execute vim regextutor and then follow the instructions in the lessons. The lessons tell you to modify the file, so DON’T DO THIS ON YOUR ORIGINAL COPY.

On Unix you can also use the vimregextutor program. It will make a scratch copy of the tutor first. Currently, this program needs to be manually installed into a directory in your PATH. Assuming you used pathogen to install VimRegexTutor, you could do something like:

cd
mkdir -p bin
ln -s $HOME/.vim/bundle/VimRegexTutor/bin/vimregextutor $HOME/bin/vimregextutor

NOTE: This is a once-off setup and won’t need to be repeated after upgrading VimRegexTutor.
