7.4 help: Get help on commands

The help command displays a list of all commands, and also can display the --help of individual commands.

To see a list of all of the commands that licensing accepts, type ‘licensing help’. The list of commands will be separated into license commands, and the rest.

To get more help on a specific command, type ‘licensing help COMMAND’. For example:

$ licensing help all-permissive
Usage: all-permissive [OPTION...] 
Show the GNU All-Permissive License.

  -?, --help                 give this help list
      --usage                give a short usage message

This example displays the help for the all-permissive command. It is equivalent to running ‘licensing all-permissive --help’.
