On a MUD the command help offers access to informative and useful files regarding the game and how to play it. Sometimes, as in AberMUDs there is a supplementary info command. It has been suggested by David Bennett, one of the founders of Discworld that help files should be written so that they are understandable by a neophyte to the game, short but complete, and well cross-referenced to related subjects.
