To get a complete list of options for the command line utilities,  type an invalid
command line option.


For example,

        gfix   -help

will give you a list of valid command line options for gfix. 

This works for  isql, gbak, gsplit, gbak, gpre, gfix, instreg, gstat, iblockpr


For gsec help, type :

gsec -help

at the command line.
