Usage:
******

Help understands the following arguments:

ALL:  Displays a small description of all available commands
CMD:  Displays a more complete description of the 'CMD' command
ARGS: Displays MorphOS shell arguments HowTo
DOM:  Shows a complete description of all commands related to DOM
      DOM can be: SHELL, USB, PCI, GFX, AUDIO|SOUND, FILES|IO,
      REXX, TASKS, MISC, RESOURCES

Examples:
Help CMD=DIR will show a full description of the DIR command
Help DOM=AUDIO will list all commands related to Sound

NOTE: If a string is given without the CMD nor DOM arguments, Help will first
look for the command list and then the domain. Example:

MorphOS:> Help why
=> display the description of the Why command.

MorphOS:> Help shell
=> displays a list of the commands found in the 'Shell' domain.

Background:
***********

This project started in September 2004. 
I had it in mind for a long time but didn't start it
because I had some other projects in mind.

After having read a thread on some Amiga/MorphOS forum
where people were discussing a lack of such a tool for our
beloved OS, I said: "Ok, it's time to DO IT !"

After months of research, guesses (a lot of MorphOS commands
have extra options which are not documented anywhere 
when compared with their AmigaOS equivalent), coding,
typing (the whole .cd file consists of no less than 1651 lines !),
I'm pleased to have documented almost all 111 shell commands :)
Only some undocumented arguments are missing.


Thanks to:
**********

- Everyone who helped me (MDC, #morphos,...) on the documentation
  of all the commands.

- People sending spell errors and missing command args.


Wanted:
*******

- Help is now almost completed but some parameters are still not
  documented. 

=> If you know the meaning of any of the "Not Documented" parameters,
   please let me know by sending an EMail at the address below...
