Post All Linux Commands


Q: Is there a way to list all linux commands at the command prompt?

I know you can use help and man for sepcific commands but how do you list all commands?

I've done searches and looked through the links section of this site and cannot find an answer.

Throw me a bone here......

cd /bin;ls;cd /sbin;ls;cd /usr/bin;ls;cd /usr/sbin;ls

should get you a pretty comprehensive list.

Doing

(cd /bin;ls;cd /sbin;ls;cd /usr/bin;ls;cd /usr/sbin;ls) > ~/comlist.txt

puts it in a text file in your home directory. To enjoy again and again and again.

Have a lot of fun!
