List Linux system commands.

You can use the “apropos compare” command to get a list of the commands on your system and a brief description of each one of them.

List Linux system commands.

Each manual page has a short description available within it.apropos searches the descriptions for instances of keyword.

keyword is usually a regular expression, as if (-r) was used, or may contain wildcards (-w), or match the exact keyword (-e).Using these options,it  may  be  necessary to quote the keyword or escape (\) the special characters to stop the shell from interpreting them.

The standard matching rules allow matches to be made against the page name and word boundaries in the description.

The database searched by apropos is updated by the mandb program.Depending on your installation, this may be run by a periodic cron job,or may need to be run manually after new manual pages have been installed.

Type the command into a terminal window:

apropos compare

Press, Enter.


The list is long, but it might help you remember which commands you used.
