Getting Help for Commands and Statements for the SRC CLI
Information about commands and statements is provided at each level of the CLI hierarchy. You can type a question mark to get help in the following ways:
If you type the question mark at the command-line prompt, the CLI lists the available commands, statements, or options. For example, to view a list of top-level operational mode commands, type a question mark (?) at the command-line prompt.
user@host> ? Possible completions: clear Clear system-level objects configure Enter configuration mode disable Stop an SRC component enable Start an installed and configured component exit Exit a CLI session file Perform file operations help Display help about commands and statements history Display command history request Make request for specified component restart Restart an SRC component set Properties for the CLI environment show Display configuration information ssh Open SSH session to another host start Start shell telnet Telnet to another host test Test a NIC resolution user@host>
If you type the question mark after entering the complete name of a command, statement, or option, the CLI lists the available options, then displays again the text that you typed.
user@host> clear ? Possible completions: sae Clear SAE-level objects security Delete security data user@host> clear
If you type the question mark in the middle of a command, statement, or option name, the CLI lists possible command completions that match the letters you have entered so far, then displays again the text that you typed. For example, to list all operational mode commands that start with the letter c, type the following:
user@host> c? Possible completions: clear Clear (delete) data configure Enter configuration mode user@host> c
You can also get extended help for a command, statement, or option by using the help command:
user@host> help enable Start a specified SRC component.
