Asks for help about SCCS commands
help finds information to explain a message from an
SCCS command or explain the use of a command.
Zero or more arguments may be supplied.
If no arguments are given, help will prompt for one.
The arguments may be either message numbers (which normally
appear in parentheses following messages) or command names.
There are the following types of arguments:
Begins with non-numerics, ends in numerics.
The non-numeric prefix is usually an abbreviation for the
program or set of routines which produced the message (for
example, ge6, for message 6 from the get command).
Does not contain numerics (as a command, such as get)
Is all numeric (for example, 212)
The response of the program will be the explanatory information
related to the argument, if there is any.
When all else fails, try ``help stuck''.
