Yes, but by "onboard" I meant that it is also part of Emacs itself. Use `C-h i'
in Emacs to access all of the onboard manuals. Start with the Info manual, which
explains how to use this help system.

"On board" might not be the official terminology, but "online" seems to imply a
network or Internet connection these days. Whatever the terminology, this is
Info, the hypertext (online) help system which is built into Emacs (in addition
to sometimes standing alone).

Look up `this-command-keys' in the Elisp manual. Or search the code in the
`lisp' directory of your Emacs installation, to see how it can be used.
