Searching for Commands, Functions, and Options

You can quickly search for commands, functions, and properties.


  1. Enter “command_name”, “$function_name()”, “$function_name”, “function_name()” or just “function_name” and click the Search icon.
  2. If you do not see a match on the first page, choose the “Search within topic headings only” filter option.
    The results are filtered to only show headings of topics and reference pages that contain the specified terms.
  3. When searching for options, you can include the leading special character or omit it. For example, when searching for a command switch, you can enter -switch_name or switch_name.
