As an old Unix hand, tlmgr --help was probably enough for Victor. It  
wasn't enough for me. As a Mac person, for instance, I expected the  
gui to ask for authentication when it needed  root permission, so the  
"sudo" in "sudo tlmgr install --all" didn't come naturally.

Luckily, there is lots of documentation and users can take their pick.
