If name contains a ’/’, it is used as the path to a Python source file to document. If name is ’keywords’, ’topics’, or ’modules’, a listing of these things is displayed.

pydoc3.3 -k keyword Search for a keyword in the synopsis lines of all available modules.

pydoc3.3 -p port Start an HTTP server on the given port on the local machine.

pydoc3.3 -g Pop up a graphical interface for finding and serving documentation.

pydoc3.3 -w name [...] Write out the HTML documentation for a module to a file in the current directory. If name contains a ’/’, it is treated as a filename; if it names a directory, documentation is written for all the contents.
