INTRO(1) BSD General Commands Manual INTRO(1)
intro -- introduction to general commands (tools and utilities)
Section one of the manual contains most of the commands which comprise the BSD user environ-
ment. Some of the commands included in section one are text editors, command shell inter-
preters, searching and sorting tools, file manipulation commands, system status commands,
remote file copy commands, mail commands, compilers and compiler tools, formatted output
tools, and line printer commands.
All commands set a status value upon exit which may be tested to see if the command com-
pleted normally. The exit values and their meanings are explained in the individual manu-
als. Traditionally, the value 0 signifies successful completion of the command.
