              dotnet tool restore -h|--help

       The  dotnet  tool  restore  command finds the tool manifest file that is in scope for the current directory and installs the
       tools that are listed in it.  For information about manifest files, see Install a local tool and Invoke a local tool.

       • --configfile <FILE>

         The NuGet configuration file (nuget.config) to use.  If specified, only the settings from this file will be used.  If  not
         specified, the hierarchy of configuration files from the current directory will be used.  For more information, see Common
         NuGet Configurations.

       • --add-source <SOURCE>

         Adds an additional NuGet package source to use during installation.  Feeds are accessed in parallel, not  sequentially  in
         some order of precedence.  If the same package and version is in multiple feeds, the fastest feed wins.  For more informa‐
         tion, see What happens when a NuGet package is installed?.

       • --tool-manifest <PATH>

         Path to the manifest file.

       • --disable-parallel

         Prevent restoring multiple projects in parallel.

       • --ignore-failed-sources

         Treat package source failures as warnings.

       • --no-cache

         Do not cache packages and http requests.

       • --interactive

         Allows the command to stop and wait for user input or action.  For example, to complete authentication.

       • -?|-h|--help

         Prints out a description of how to use the command.

       • -v|--verbosity <LEVEL>

         Sets the verbosity level of the command.  Allowed values are q[uiet], m[inimal], n[ormal], d[etailed],  and  diag[nostic].
         For more information, see <xref:Microsoft.Build.Framework.LoggerVerbosity>.
