----------------------------------
    Attachment: HBASE-12049.patch

The following will be help message after applying the patch.
{code}
Here is some help for this command:
Alter a table. If "hbase.online.schema.update.enable" property is set to false,
then table must be disabled else need not be disabled (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.
