uss_apropos - Displays each help entry containing a keyword string (deprecated)


uss apropos -topic <help string> [-help]

uss ap -t <help string> [-h]


The uss command suite is currently designed for cells using the obsolete Authentication Server, and therefore is primarily useful for sites that have not yet migrated to a Kerberos version 5 KDC. The Authentication Server and supporting commands will be removed in a future version of OpenAFS, which may include uss unless someone who finds it useful converts it to work with a Kerberos version 5 KDC.


The uss apropos command displays the first line of the online help entry for any uss command that has in its name or short description the string specified by the -topic argument.

To display the syntax for a command, use the uss help command.


-topic <help string>+

Specifies the keyword string to match, in lowercase letters only. If the string is more than a single word, surround it with double quotes ("") or other delimiters.


Prints the online help for this command. All other valid options are ignored.


The first line of a command's online help entry names it and briefly describes its function. This command displays the first line for any uss command where the string specified by the -topic argument is part of the command name or first line.


The following command lists all uss commands that include the word create in their names or short descriptions:

   % uss apropos create
   add: create a new user
