Splunk Fundamentals 1 - Module 9 question

I'm going through the Splunk Fundamentals 1 course and I'm currently on module 9 - Transforming commands.

During the top command section, there is a bit about about the top command clauses:

limit = int
countfield = string
percentfield = string
showcount = true/false
showperc = true/false
showother = true/false

I can't find any documentation on showother - is this an error and supposed to be useother?

As you have pointed out and since in documentation, there's nothing about showother , it migth be an error. http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/7.1.0/SearchReference/Top


Syntax: countfield= | limit= | otherstr= | percentfield= | showcount= | showperc= | useother=
Description: Options for the top command. See Top options.

If it existed, it would/should be here, so I'd agree with your assumption - it actually means useother.
