How to get a list of locally available commands

At the command-line prompt, type:

ls /usr/local/bin/

If the top of the list scrolls off the top of your screen, try this:

ls /usr/local/bin/ | less

From there, hit q to return to the command line.

Learning to use these commands

Note that not all commands will have a manual page or --help option, but you can ask in chat if you run into problems. Just type chat on the command line.

Using man to read manual pages

man <command>

An example of this would be man ls

Using the --help option

<command> --help

An example of this would be wiki --help

Most commands understand one of: --help, -help, -h.
