Debguy, I think that you have wildly misinterpreted what the OP is seeking (either that, or I have).

I think the OP (we seem to have lost the OP, so there probably is little point in adding much until the OP comes back and clarifies) is seeking documentation on commands such as ls, cat, mv, du, df, man, etc, etc and not the VT100 (etc) terminal cursor movement commands. Could be wrong, and there is not much detail so further information from the OP would be appreciated.

Terminal Commands, Linux

To address the request directly:

.....that will provide you with a wealth of reading.
.....see also: man a2ps -and- ls /usr/bin/ps* -and/or- ls /usr/bin/*pdf* /usr/bin/*ps* gets carried away.

my suggestion (for getting man pages into pdf): {verb} >{verb}.txt; a2ps {verb}.txt; ps2pdf {verb}.ps
.....^may need some help*

* if man {verb} >{verb}.txt "hangs" simply tap <Enter> ,wait a moment and repeat until sys-prompt returns.
....the rest will complete on their own.

Note: because at one time I had a bunch of that to do, I created a .scr (script) to do the work for me.
........Got'ta love Linux. Command line does the work and GUI does the presentation.
........if it helps: Linux is like a Rubix Cube. Line things up (and there is your production line)

Best of Luck!
