----------------------- MS-DOS v6.22 Help: FastHelp ------------------------
<Notes>                                                              <Index>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                                  FASTHELP
 
 
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.
 
Syntax
 
    FASTHELP [command]
 
    [command] /?
 
Parameter
 
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.
 
Related Command
 
For information about MS-DOS Help, see the <HELP> command.

<Syntax>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 
                               FASTHELP--Note
 
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.
