Abbreviated Syntax

Abbreviated syntax is the shortest unambiguous allowable abbreviation of a command or parameter. Typically, this is the first three letters of the command.

When using abbreviated syntax, you must enter enough characters to make the command unambiguous and distinguishable to the switch. If you do not enter enough letters to allow the switch to determine which command you mean, the syntax helper provides a list of the options based on the portion of the command you have entered.
