list of commands
does anyone have a quick reference for the commands that you can run in the terminal.

actually all i really need right now is just the command for running a program.

its like this -

1. if its files of the type u just talked bout (flash_installer...), where u do not see any file extension at the end, then u can just execute them by typing "./file_name" in the same directory as the file is in.

2. if u see files of the type xxx.bin or some else , then most probably u might have to change its file type to executable which u will do by typing (in the terminal, in the directory where the file is):
chmod a+x file_name

the above command will make that file executable.

and then u do the same as earlier - "./file_name"

since ur on rh, u might wanna look at stuff here as reference:

pressing the TAB key two times in an empty terminal will list all the commands you can execute.
