     There are two types of options - global and local to specified command.

     The commands and local options are:

     crypt [password]
	     Slightly encrypt clear text password to use it in the ~/.nsmbrc
	     file. The encrypted password starts with '$$1' symbols.  Warning:
	     the encryption function is	very weak and intented only to hide
	     clear text	password.  If password is ommited from command line,
	     program will prompt for one.

     login [-connection	options] //user@server[/share]
	     Login/attach to the specified server and/or share as user.	 This
	     command will create and authenticate connection to	an SMB server,
	     and will leave it active after exit.  Thus, one can login only
	     once and then use other SMB commands without authentication pro-
	     cedure and	additional connections.	 For the description of
	     [-connection options] see mount_smbfs(8) command (all uppercase
	     options are connection options).

	     connection	may not	be closed immediately if it used by other pro-

     lookup [-w	host] name
	     Resolve given name	to IP address.	NetBIOS	name server can	be
	     directly specified	via [-w] option.

     print [-connection	options] //user@server/share file
	     Send given	file to	the specified queue on the remote server.  If
	     file is '-', then standard	input will be used.

     view [-connection options]	//user@server
	     List resources avaliable on the specified server for the user

     ~/.nsmbrc	    keeps description for each connection.  See
