HEP-database HELP

SHOW/EXPLAIN commands in the preprint-database search

* Use the SHOW (SHO) and EXPLAIN (EXP) commands to learn more about the HEP-database. For example,
        SHOW SUBFILE DESCRIPTION      (= SHO SUBDES)
gives a brief description of the HEP-database. An equivalent command is EXPLAIN HEP. The term 'subfile' above means 'database'. If you type
        SHOW SEARCH TERMS             (= SHO SEA TER)       or
        SHOW INDEXES                  (= SHO IND)
you will get the list of the HEP-database search terms and their valid aliases. Use these search terms ('indexes') with the FIND and BROWSE commands. The command
        SHOW SUBFILE SIZE             (= SHO SUBSIZ)
will show how many records are stored in the database.

Return to the main HEP-database page, select help for the
 FIND command (see also instructions for
searching by DATE index), or find help for the
 BROWSE command,  or see instructions for
 displaying the result.
