Hi Everyone,

I'm trying to print a command of list options by using the help command in the iPython interpreter. Read captured copy of the printout as follows:

'Python 2.7.10 |Anaconda 2.3.0 (64-bit)| (default, May 28 2015, 16:44:52) [MSC v.
1500 64 bit (AMD64)]
Type "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.

IPython 3.2.0 -- An enhanced Interactive Python.
Anaconda is brought to you by Continuum Analytics.
Please check out: and

In [1]: help list
  File "<ipython-input-1-823a3ff84bc4>", line 1
    help list
SyntaxError: invalid syntax.'

Question: What is the correct help command?
