well, you could have done something like this:

      C-h a stamp RET

gives you description like this:

    If you move the mouse over text that changes color,
    you can click mouse-2 to get more information.
    In this buffer, type RET to get full documentation.

    bbdb-timestamp-newer          M-x bbdb-timestamp-newer RET
      Command: *Display records with timestamp newer than DATE.
    bbdb-timestamp-older          M-x bbdb-timestamp-older RET
      Command: *Display records with timestamp older than DATE.
    time-stamp                    M-x time-stamp RET
      Command: Update the time stamp string in the buffer.
    time-stamp-toggle-active      M-x time-stamp-toggle-active RET
      Command: Toggle `time-stamp-active', setti  [. . .] 

then you could click mouse-2 on the 'Command:' under the 'time-stamp'
entry to get a description.

See, it's really quite simple.
