Is there a way to list the command line arguments showed by
vim -h or
vim --help from within Vim?
:r!vim -h which seems to be a workaround to achieve this.

*info-message* The |--help| and |--version| arguments cause Vim to print a message and then exit. Normally the message is sent to stdout, thus can be redirected to a file with: > vim --help >file From inside Vim: > :read !vim --help
:h vim-arguments is a detailed explanation of each argument. Although not in the same abbreviated formatting as in the command line helper.
