The standards are available at Index of /onlinepubs/9699919799/utilities.

I use this bash function to look up the specs for a standard command:

Code:
sus()
{
    local dir=9699919799
    local localsusdir=/usr/share/sus/ ## adjust to taste
    html_file=$localsusdir/$1.html
    sus_dir=http://www.opengroup.org/onlinepubs/$dir/utilities/
    [ -f "/usr/share/sus/$1.html" ] || lynx -source $sus_dir${1##*/}.html > $html_file
    lynx -dump -nolist $html_file | ${PAGER:-less}
}

Invoke as, e.g.:

Code:
sus find

NAME
sieveshell - remotely manipulate sieve scripts SYNOPSIS
sieveshell [--user=user] [--authname=authname] [--realm=realm] [--exec=script] server[:port] sieveshell --help DESCRIPTION
sieveshell allows users to manipulate their scripts on a remote server. It works via MANAGESIEVE, a work in progress. The following commands are recognized: list list scripts on server. put <filename> upload script to server. get <name> [<filename>] get script. if no filename display to stdout delete <name> delete script. activate <name> activate script. deactivate deactivate all scripts. OPTIONS
-u user, --user=user The authorization name to request; by default, derived from the authentication credentials. -a authname, --authname=authname The user to use for authentication (defaults to current user). -r realm, --realm=realm The realm to attempt authentication in. -e script, --exec=script Instead of working interactively, run commands from script, and exit when done.
