PROM Commands

Typing help at the ok prompt will give you a list of main categories of commands available. Typing help category will show help for all commands in the category (use only the first word of the category description). Typing help command will show help and details of the individual command.

A lesser known boot PROM tool is the sifting command. Typing sifting characters will display names of all commands containing your sequence of characters. For example:

ok sifting probe
probe-all probe-scsi-all probe-sbus probe-slots probe probe-fpu probe-virtual lprobe wprobe cprobe

You can then use help command to get the correct syntax.
