VMWare VI Remote CLI

Hi, I'm sorry if this thread is a troll, but I really don't find any good information by the search engine (regarding this subject of course).

I've recently installed ESXi 3.5.

Now I'd like to manage it, I know that I can do it using my existing VMWare Infrastructure Client, in GUI.

But I've downloaded the VMWare VI Remote CLI, and I understood that with this, I can mange my ESX and virtual machine,

using functions in command line, remotely (and then create administratives scripts to run automatically).

I'm looking for a documentation about using the command lines to create VM, start, stop, add storage, manage them ...

Is there a place or documentations that can help me?

Tanks for your help.
