Parameter help displays help on the framework's parameters. The parameter accepts an optional argument value. If present, an argument value is interpreted as a parameter name (name guessing works as well, so for example --help=rand displays help on the parameter random). If the parameter name is unknown or ambiguous error is reported. If argument value is absent, a summary of all framework's parameter is displayed.

Acceptable values

An optional parameter name string.
