Usage: HELP [<command> [<subcommands>]]
Shows help on the given command. The help documentation is
set up in a hierarchical fashion. That means that certain
help topics have sub-topics under them. For example, doing
gives help on the admin command, while:
gives help on the set command and also displays a list of
sub-topics for SET. To get help on the subtopics, you would
HELP SET <subtopic>
where <subtopic> is one of the subtopics. If you are using the
built in help, then you need only type the subtopic name. The
input prompt will indicate what help level you are on. Hitting
return will move you up one level.
At any time, you can specify a ? to get a list of subtopics
without the associated help file, for example:
gives a list of all main help topics. The following:
HELP BIND ?
gives the list of all BIND subtopics. If you use a ? with
a topic that has no subtopics, you will simply get the
standard help file for that topic.
Case is unimportant even when viewing the lower case
filenames such as 'newuser' or 'intro'.
