    hi
    try---> man man in a terminal. and you will wonder how much commands and .... on the system.
    to print them out you have to convert it via nroff/ troff ( may be there is a easyer way - but i don't know it)

    Code:
    ls `echo $PATH | sed 's/:/ /g'` | sed 's/^\/.*://' | sed '/^$/d' | sort | less
    Will give you an alphabetic list of the usable commands which you currently have installed.
