+.Sh USING LLDB
+there is a \fBhelp\fR command which can be used to find descriptions and examples of
+commands. To get help on "\fBbreakpoint set\fR" you would type "\fBhelp breakpoint set\fR".
+There is also an \fBapropos\fR command which will search the help text of all commands
+for a given term -- this is useful for locating a command by topic. For instance, "\fBapropos breakpoint\fR"
+will list any command that has the word \fBbreakpoint\fR in its help text.
+will read settings/aliases/commands from three files at startup, if they exist.
+First, it will read a \fB~/.lldbinit-\fIdebugger\fR command file. If you are using the
+command line interface, this is \fB~/.lldbinit-lldb\fR. If you are using
+inside a GUI debugger like
+this will be \fB~/.lldbinit-Xcode\fR. This is a useful place to put settings that you
+want to apply only when a given
+command interpreter is used.
+Second, \fB~/.lldbinit\fR is read.
+Third, an \fR.lldbinit\fR file in the current working directory (where
+is started) will be read.
