       kas_help - Displays help for kas commands


       kas help [-topic <help string>+] [-help]

       kas h [-t <help string>+] [-h]


       The kas help command displays the complete online help entry (short
       description and syntax statement) for each command operation code
       specified by the -topic argument. If the -topic argument is omitted,
       the output includes the first line (name and short description) of the
       online help entry for every kas command.

       To list every kas command whose name or short description includes a
       specified keyword, use the kas apropos command.


       -topic <help string>+
           Indicates each command for which to display the complete online
           help entry. Omit the kas part of the command name, providing only
           the operation code (for example, specify setpassword, not kas
           setpassword). If this argument is omitted, the output briefly
           describes every kas command.

           Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options
           are ignored.


       The online help entry for each kas command consists of the following
       two or three lines:

       ·   The first line names the command and briefly describes its

       ·   The second line lists aliases for the command, if any.

       ·   The final line, which begins with the string "Usage", lists the
           command’s options in the prescribed order. Online help entries use
           the same symbols (for example, brackets) as the reference pages in
           this document.


       The following command displays the online help entry for the kas
       setpassword command:

          % kas help setpassword
          kas setpassword: set a user's password
          aliases: sp
          Usage: kas setpassword -name <name of user>
          [-new_password <new password>] [-kvno <key version number>]
          [-admin_username <admin principal to use for authentication>]
          [-password_for_admin <password>] [-cell <cell name>]
          [-servers <explicit list of authentication servers>+] [-help]


       None, and no password is required.
