559    
560    In addition to this manual, @climacs{} contains an online help
561    facility.  There are several different topics that you can get help
562    with.  Most of these topics are obtained by some order using the
563    @kbd{C-h}
564    @kindex C-h
565    prefex key.  The key following @kbd{C-h} determines what kind of help
566    information is displayed.

574    @node Help with a key binding
575    @section Help with a key binding
576    
577    To obtain a list of all orders and the associated commands that are
578    valid in a particular context, use the order @kbd{C-h b}
579    @kindex C-h b
580    (@command{Describe Bindings}).  A table with each command name and
581    associated order (if any) is displayed in a new window.
582    
583    @node Help with a particular key sequence
584    @section Help with a particular key sequence
585    
586    To obtain a description of what some putative order will do, use the
587    order @kbd{C-h c}
588    @kindex C-h c
589    (@command{Describe Key Briefly}.  You will be prompted for a key
590    sequence.  If the key sequence you type is bound to a command, the
591    command name will be displayed in the minibuffer.  Otherwise a message
592    indicating that the key is not bound to a command will be displayed.

594    @node Help finding an order for a command
595    @section Help finding an order for a command
596    
597    Sometimes, you know the name of a command, and would like to find out
598    whether it is bound to any order, and if so, which one(s).  For that,
599    you can use the order @kbd{C-h w}
600    @kindex C-h w
601    (@command{Where Is}).  You will be prompted for a command name
602    (completion can be used as usual), and if the command name given is
603    bound to an order, that order will displayed in the minibuffer.
604    Otherwise, a message indicating that the command is not bound to any
605    order will be displayed.
