`multipass help` command

The multipass help command without an argument will list all the available commands with a brief explanation. It accepts a <command> argument to get detailed help for the command in question.

$ multipass help   
Usage: multipass [options] <command>
Create, control and connect to Ubuntu instances.

This is a command line utility for multipass, a
service that manages Ubuntu instances.

  -h, --help     Display this help
  -v, --verbose  Increase logging verbosity. Repeat the 'v' in the short option
                 for more detail. Maximum verbosity is obtained with 4 (or more)
                 v's, i.e. -vvvv.

Available commands:
  delete         Delete instances
  exec           Run a command on an instance
  find           Display available images to create instances from
  get            Get a configuration setting
  help           Display help about a command
  info           Display information about instances
  launch         Create and start an Ubuntu instance
  list           List all available instances
  list-networks  List available network interfaces
  mount          Mount a local directory in the instance
  purge          Purge all deleted instances permanently
  recover        Recover deleted instances
  restart        Restart instances
  set            Set a configuration setting
  shell          Open a shell on a running instance
  start          Start instances
  stop           Stop running instances
  suspend        Suspend running instances
  transfer       Transfer files between the host and instances
  umount         Unmount a directory from an instance
  version        Show version details

Using the --help option has the same result.

--verbose passed to any command will increase its output verbosity and you can repeat it (up to three times) to get even more output. By default, only errors will be displayed, with -v warnings would be added, -vv enables informational messages and -vvv will print out debugging information.
