5.24.2 Locating documentation

help ( "rest-of-line" –  ) gforth-1.0 “help”

If no name is given, show basic help. If a documentation node name is given followed by "::", show the start of the node. If the name of a word is given, show the documentation of the word if it exists, or its source code if not. Use g to enter the editor at the point shown by help. open command addr u, and read in the result

Help sets the current location, so you can use n and b to show more of the text, or g to visit the documentation in an editor (see Locating source code definitions).
