Why? Linux commands are Linux commands. Why bust out another distro if the one you have will do what was asked?

Look at the folder /bin

Then for almost each one of them use the command

man awk

or

man cp


or whatever you see. man is a command to show the manual or man page for each command.

Some commands reveal the options by ending the command name with --help



There are also what are called built in commands to some extent on the shell but that info may be in bash or your shells info.
Sometimes using command

help

lists them.

Most of those commands aren't specific to Bash - they're command line programs that will run in any shell. Only the ones marked as such are specific to Bash (although other shells probably have their equivalents).

you can buy a book, or read the man pages to figure out how to use the commands that you know of, (cp, cd, mkdir, rm, grep, and cat would be great first starts if youve never heard of them)

if you are into scripting, or are going to be, learning how to use vi couldnt hurt
