Occasionally, MUME will give you a suggestion of similar help texts, or other commands, to try instead, if it cannot find any match.

If you have a client that supports the MUME Client Protocol (like cancan, powwow or addadd) you get the help text in your local viewer by writing "help -view <subject>" or "help -v <subject>".

Some objects allow you to type "help <object>" when you are holding them (or standing next to them). E.g. while holding a book you can type "help book" to get information on how to read and edit (if you have the access) this book.

If you think one topic lacks information, is wrong, incomplete or missing, please report it with the BUG, IDEA or TYPO commands.
