Why isn't reading the man pages efficient?  They're online:


Of course, if you're on a Unixy platform you can use 'man path/to/filename' to read them as well.  Unfortunately, not all tools have man pages, e.g. installvst and svcutil, even though they are installed into $PREFIX/bin.

Not unless the tool has a README, which is true for some tools (e.g. mono/mcs/tools/linker/README) but not others (e.g. mdoc).
