NAME

       backup_help - Displays help for backup commands

SYNOPSIS

       backup help [-topic <help string>+] [-admin] [-help]

       backup h [-t <help string>+] [-a] [-h]

DESCRIPTION

       The backup help command displays the complete online help entry (short description and
       syntax statement) for each 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 backup command.

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

OPTIONS

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

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

OUTPUT

       The online help entry for each backup 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 example displays the online help entry for the backup dump command:

          % backup help dump
          backup dump: start dump
          Usage: backup dump -volumeset <volume set name> -dump <dump level name>
          [-portoffset <TC port offset>]  [-at <Date/time to start dump>+]
          [-append]  [-n]  [-file <load file>]  [-help]
