number of linux commands


Hi,

I am interested to know how many linux commands does a server setup
of CentOS 5 has.
A range of numbers will also do.
Thanks for your time

on fedora holding down ctrl-alt-+ will list all programs in your $PATH.

you can also do something like count all the files listed in echo $PATH

its hard to give a specific number because its like asking how many miles a car has.

Here's the easiest way.

Create a blank directory in a shell.

Press tab twice.

It will tell you all the possibilities. Even list them is you're zealous.
