I've never seen it mentioned anywhere ever that there is a 'help' command. I guess it's not intuitive enough for new users so most documentation ignores it or something...very strange.
onebuck, I prefer `man man`.
:~# help help
help: help [-s] [pattern ...]
Display helpful information about builtin commands. If PATTERN is
specified, gives detailed help on all commands matching PATTERN,
otherwise a list of the builtins is printed. The -s option
restricts the output for each builtin command matching PATTERN to
a short usage synopsis.
