To request help at any point in a command, enter a question mark "?".




If nothing matches, the help list is empty. Delete the last letter of the command and enter a "?" until the available options are shown.


Two styles of help are provided:


· Full help is available when you are ready to enter a command argument (for example, "show ?"). Each argument is described.


· Partial help is provided when an abbreviated argument is entered and you want to know what arguments match the input (for example, "show w?").
