8.6.1 getdefs help/usage (‘help’)

This is the automatically generated usage text for getdefs.

The text printed is the same whether selected with the help option (‘help’) or the more-help option (‘more-help’). more-help will print the usage text by passing it through a pager program. more-help is disabled on platforms without a working fork(2) function. The PAGER environment variable is used to select the program, defaulting to ‘more’. Both will exit with a status code of 0.
