command line documentation??

I am trying to find descriptions of commands and how exactly to form a command. For example, I've seen  vmkfstools --breaklock mentioned in documents or at the -? results on the command line, but I'll be damned if any pdf file about command lines actually describes it at all beyond simply mentioning it. Can someone at least tell me if that kind of thing is actually specifically documented somewhere or not?

I'm trying to break through a lock which is preventing me from deleting files that really need to be deleted. And no, I can't find anything that gives any indication of which machine if any (out of 17) is holding onto the file. Everything comes up blank so far.

ESXi 4.1
