Ticket #272 (closed enhancement: fixed)
Support 'cabal help' in addition to 'cabal --help'
|Reported by:||tibbe||Owned by:|
Many tools with a Cabal like interface (e.g. darcs, git, subversion, perforce) support
<program name> help [<command>]
where leaving out the command gives the same behavior as
<program name> --help
Supporting the same interface as may other tools would be nice for new users (who are likely to type help!) and experienced users as well (same syntax for all your tools). The first, and probably easiest thing would be to just support 'cabal help' but I would be nice with 'cabal help <command>' as well.
