The help message shown for alter command is a bit confusing.
A part of current help message
Here is some help for this command:
Alter a table. Depending on the HBase setting ("hbase.online.schema.update.enable"),
the table must be disabled or not to be altered (see help 'disable').
You can add/modify/delete column families, as well as change table
configuration. Column families work similarly to create; column family
spec can either be a name string, or a dictionary with NAME attribute.
Dictionaries are described on the main help command output.
