Description

NPM-HELP(1)                                                        NPM-HELP(1)



NAME
       npm-help - Get help on npm

SYNOPSIS
         npm help <term> [<terms..>]

DESCRIPTION
       If supplied a topic, then show the appropriate documentation page.

       If  the  topic  does not exist, or if multiple terms are provided, then
       run the help-search command to find a match.  Note that, if help-search
       finds  a single subject, then it will run help on that topic, so unique
       matches are equivalent to specifying a topic name.

CONFIGURATION
   viewer
       o Default: "man" on Posix, "browser" on Windows

       o Type: path


       The program to use to view help content.
