HELP and ?

When typed at the Miriad% prompt, the help command gives a list of all the available tasks. This feature is useful when you use miriad for the first time. When typed at the taskname% prompt, the help command gives information on the chosen task. As with other commands, typing

        histo% help itemize
displays the help file for itemize but does not change the default taskname (i.e. histo). To display the list of available tasks from a taskname % prompt, type help ?.

The ? command lists general help about the miriad interface, including most of the information contained in this section.
