help - ask for help about SCCS error messages and commands
Help finds information to explain a message from an SCCS command or

supplied. If no arguments are given, help will prompt for one.
The arguments may be either message numbers (which normally appear in
parentheses following messages) or command names, of one of the following

type 3 Is all numeric (e.g., 212)
The response of the program will be the explanatory information related
