Description
===========
-**taler-bank-transfer** is a command line tool to trigger bank
-transfers to the exchange. Useful for testing provided that
-the configured Taler Wire Gateway supports the wire transfer
-API.
+**taler-bank-transfer** is a command line tool to trigger bank transfers or
+inspect wire transfers for exchange accounts using the wire API. The tool is
+expected to be used during testing or for diagnostics.
+
+You can do one of the following four operations during one invocation.
+
+ (1) Execute wire transfer from the exchange to consumer account (**-C**).
+ (2) Execute wire transfer from consumer account to the exchange (**-D**).
+ (3) Inspect credit history of the exchange (**-i**).
+ (4) Inspect debit history of the exchange (**-o**).
+
+Doing more than one of these at a time will result in an error. Note,
+however, that the **-C** and **-D** options also can be used to act as filters
+on transaction history operations.
+
+
