pdldoc - shell interface to PDL documentation


pdldoc <text>

pdldoc [-a] [-h] [-s] [-u] <text>


The aim of pdldoc is to provide the same functionality as the apropos, help, sig, and usage commands available in the perldl shell.

Think of it as the PDL equivalent of perldoc -f.


-h help
print documentation about a PDL function or module or show a PDL manual. This is the default option.
-a apropos
Regex search PDL documentation database.
-s sig
prints signature of PDL function.
-u usage
Prints usage information for a PDL function.


This is pdldoc v0.2.
