      Description

      When using the gfsh help command, it would be nice to be able to type only a partial command to see help for all commands that begin with what I've typed. For example, I know lots of commands start with start and I want a quick summary to decide which one I need, so I type help start and this is all I get:

      Observed:

      gfsh>help start
      no help exists for this command.
      

      Desired:

      gfsh>help start
      start gateway-receiver (Not Available)
          Start the Gateway Receiver on a member or members.
      start gateway-sender (Not Available)
          Start the Gateway Sender on a member or members.
      start jconsole (Available)
          Start the JDK's JConsole tool in a separate process. JConsole will be launched, but connecting to GemFire must be done manually.
      start jvisualvm (Available)
          Start the JDK's Java VisualVM (jvisualvm) tool in a separate process. Java VisualVM will be launched, but connecting to GemFire must be done manually.
      start locator (Available)
          Start a Locator.
      start pulse (Available)
          Open a new window in the default Web browser with the URL for the Pulse application.
      start server (Available)
          Start a GemFire Cache Server.
      start vsd (Available)
          Start VSD in a separate process.
      
      Use help <command name> to display detailed usage information for a specific command.
      Help with command and parameter completion can also be obtained by entering all or a portion of either followed by the "TAB" key.
      

      Also it would be nice if tab-completion worked for hint and help commands.
