NAME

       bos help - Displays help for bos commands

SYNOPSIS

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

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

DESCRIPTION

       The bos help command displays the complete online help entry (short
       description and syntax statement) for each command operation code
       specified by the -topic argument. If the -topic argument is omitted,
       the output includes the first line (name and short description) of the
       online help entry for every bos command.

       To list every bos command whose name or short description includes a
       specified keyword, use the bos apropos command.

OPTIONS

       -topic <help string>+
           Indicates each command for which to display the complete online
           help entry. Omit the bos part of the command name, providing only
           the operation code (for example, specify status, not bos status).
           If this argument is omitted, the output briefly describes every bos
           command.

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

OUTPUT

       The online help entry for each bos command consists of the following
       two or three lines:

       ·   The first line names the command and briefly describes its
           function.

       ·   The second line lists aliases for the command, if any.

       ·   The final line, which begins with the string Usage, lists the
           command’s options in the prescribed order. Online help entries use
           the same symbols (for example, brackets) as the reference pages in
           this document.

EXAMPLES

       The following command displays the online help entry for the bos status
       command:

          % bos help status
          bos status: show server instance status
          Usage: bos status -server <machine name> [-instance <server
          process name>+] [-long] [-cell <cell name>] [-noauth]
          [-localauth] [-help]
