npm-help(1) -- Get help on npm

SYNOPSIS

If the topic does not exist, or if multiple terms are provided, then run the help-search command to find a match. Note that, if help-search finds a single subject, then it will run help on that topic, so unique matches are equivalent to specifying a topic name.
