getting help/possible commands for rake??? e.g. options for "db:migrate"


What’s the syntax for getting help/list of commands available for rake (within a RoRs application). For example:

  • what commands are possible (e.g. db:migrate)?
  • how to get an overview / list of options for a command?

For example getting full list of options for db:migrate, I’ve tried “rake db:migrate --version” and this doesn’t seem to do it.


Greg - "rake --tasks"


thanks Jodi

Is there an additional rake help available for each task? e.g. rake --help? Perhaps there isn’t from what I can tell?
