Subject [jira] Closed: (FELIX-1145) Modify help shell command to avoid issues with long command descriptions
Date Wed, 13 May 2009 13:50:45 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/FELIX-1145?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Richard S. Hall closed FELIX-1145.
----------------------------------

    Resolution: Fixed

The help command now displays only the command names when invoked with no arguments. To get
more information on a specific command, invoke the help command with the command name as an
argument.

> The help command tries to align usage and description columns for the various shell command
services. Unfortunately, this doesn't work very well when the columns for some commands are
long. I think we should modify help so it gives only the usage by default and you can say
"help <command>" to get the description. Of course, the reverse might also make sense,
but descriptions tend to be longer.
