To enter a command string, type a portion of the command string with a question mark (?) . The CLI returns all the possible commands words that start with the combination of characters entered.
The example above demonstrates that the string - re - is associated with two other commands that begin with the identical letter combination. Adding another letter to the entry string renders the entry unique enough to be associated with a single command, as demonstrated below.
To recall commands in the history buffer beginning with the most recent command, press Control+P . Repeat the key sequence to recall successively older commands.
To return to more recent commands in the history buffer after recalling commands with Control+P , press Control+N or the up and down arrows. Repeat the key sequence to recall successively more recent commands.
Showing Additional Arguments
If too few arguments are entered, the CLI responds with Incomplete command . Press Control+P to repeat the previous command entry. Then add a space and a question mark (?) to show the additional arguments.
When no more arguments are needed, CLI indicate this with <cr>.
Using Editing Commands
The CLI includes a set of editing key function. Use the key sequences indicated below to move the cursor around on the command line for corrections or changes.
