HELP REF John Williams, May 1989 ref is a special command for looking at system documentation files. It can be invoked from inside the editor by typing: <ENTER> ref name or from outside the editor with: ref name The argument name may either be the name of a REF file, or the name of an identifier. In the latter case, the REF command will display the appropriate portion of the REF file that describes name. If there are several entries for an identifier, a temporary REF file will be created which lists all the entries, in normal Ved cross- reference format. You can then select the one you want with ESC-n and ESC-h. An example you can try is ref ^. There are entries for this in both REF * FLAVOURS and REF * SYNTAX. See also: REF * INDEX - Alphabetic list of the REF files. REF * REFFILES - Overview of REF files. HELP * DOCUMENTATION - General documentation overview. --- C.all/help/ref --- Copyright University of Sussex 1996. All rights reserved.
