----------------------- MS-DOS v6.22 Help: FastHelp ------------------------
<Notes>                                                            <Index>


Displays a list of all MS-DOS commands and gives a brief explanation of
each. The information that the FASTHELP command displays is similar to, but
less detailed than, the information found in MS-DOS Help.


    FASTHELP [command]

    [command] /?


    Specifies the name of the command about which you want information. If
    you do not specify a command name, the FASTHELP command lists and
    briefly describes every command provided with MS-DOS.

For information about MS-DOS Help, see the <HELP> command.




You can use FASTHELP to get online Help for a command in two ways. You can
specify the name of the command on the FASTHELP command line, or you can
type the name of the command and the /? switch at the command prompt. For
example, you can type either of the following commands to get information
about the XCOPY command:

    fasthelp xcopy

    xcopy /?

The second command is slightly faster.
