Subject: [PATCH 5/5] index: add built-in --help / -?
Date: Fri,  7 Aug 2020 10:52:18 +0000
Message-ID: <20200807105218.16843-6-e@yhbt.net> (raw)
In-Reply-To: <20200807105218.16843-1-e@yhbt.net>

Eventually, commonly-used commands run by the user will all
support --help / -? for user-friendliness.   The changes from
up-front `use' to lazy `require' speed up `--help' by 3x or so.
