NAME

       bos apropos - Displays each help entry containing a keyword string

SYNOPSIS

       bos apropos << -topic <help string >>> [-help]

       bos ap << -t <help string >>> [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The bos apropos command displays the first line of the online help
       entry for any bos command that has in its name or short description the
       string specified by the -topic argument.

       To display the syntax for a command, use the bos help command.

OPTIONS

       -topic <help string>
           Specifies the keyword string to match, in lowercase letters only.
           If the string is more than a single word, surround it with double
           quotes ("") or other delimiters.

       -help
           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.

OUTPUT

       The first line of a command’s online help entry names it and briefly
       describes its function. This command displays the first line for any
       bos command where the string specified with the -topic argument is part
       of the command name or first line.

EXAMPLES

       The following command lists all bos commands that include the word
       restart in their names or short descriptions:

          % bos apropos restart
          getrestart: get restart times
          restart: restart all processes
          setrestart: set restart times
