In TIC-80, you can type on the command prompt "help" followed by the name of any built in function and the console will then output a short explanation about how to use that function. It would be nice to have something like this in Pico-8 as well. For example, you type in the command prompt:

help spr

and then Pico-8 outputs a short explanation of how spr works, followed by the parameters it takes.

While there are a great many help files for Pico-8, I would like to second @profpatonildo's suggestion. It would be nice to have this. Gold starring it.

Even better for the help quip to have foreground color changes and background color changes in the text description where desired.

And I remember GFA and QBasic doing this years ago, giving you help in addition to an example program for every single command including PRINT PSET and FOR
