help - display fish documentation


help [SECTION]


help displays the fish help documentation.

If a SECTION is specified, the help for that command is shown.

If the BROWSER environment variable is set, it will be used to display the documentation. Otherwise, fish will search for a suitable browser.

If you prefer to use a different browser (other than as described above) for fish help, you can set the fish_help_browser variable. This variable may be set as a list, where the first element is the browser command and the rest are browser options.

Note that most builtin commands display their help in the terminal when given the --help option.


help fg shows the documentation for the fg builtin.
