Help file organization


Reorganize commands, variables, and functions into sub-headings by category.

Currently, there are over 200 topic pages (commands) under the "Commands" heading in the help file. It's a huge, unwieldy list to search through. I think it would be a lot easier to navigate if commands were organized into subheadings corresponding to the "Commands by Category" page. (Commands by Category itself might then be deleted as redundant, since the help file's tree structure would serve the same function.) The 190+ variables and 350+ functions would also benefit from similar organization.

This would be a big, tedious, time-consuming job -- but a relatively easy one, which could be delegated, right?
