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 HELP ADMIN gives help on the admin command, while: HELP SET gives help on the set command and also displays a list of sub-topics for set. To get help on the subtopics, you would do: 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: HELP ? 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.
Note: Case is unimportant even when viewing the lower case filenames such as 'newuser' or 'intro'.
