Usage: hadoop [--config confdir] COMMAND
where COMMAND is one of:
fs run a generic filesystem user client
version print the version
jar run a jar file
checknative [-a|-h] check native hadoop and compression libraries availability
distcp copy file or directories recursively
archive -archiveName NAME -p * create a hadoop archive
classpath prints the class path needed to get the
Hadoop jar and the required libraries

Most commands print help when invoked w/o parameters.
