       backup_help - Displays help for backup commands


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

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


       The backup help command displays the complete online help entry (short
       description and syntax statement) for each 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 backup command.

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


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

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


       The online help entry for each backup 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 example displays the online help entry for the backup
       dump command:

          % backup help dump
          backup dump: start dump
          Usage: backup dump -volumeset <volume set name> -dump <dump level name>
          [-portoffset <TC port offset>]  [-at <Date/time to start dump>+]
          [-append]  [-n]  [-file <load file>]  [-help]
