NAME
       intro - introduction to commands

DESCRIPTION
       This  section  describes	 publicly  accessible  commands	 in alphabetic
       order.  Commands	of general utility, many with  enhancements  from  4.3
       BSD.

       Pages of	special	interest have been categorized as follows:

       1C	 Commands for communicating with other systems.

       1G	 Commands  used	 primarily  for	 graphics  and	computer-aided
		 design.

       1V	 System	V commands.  One or more of the	following are true:

		 o  The	man page documents System V behavior only.

		 o  The	man page documents default SunOS behavior, and	System
		    V behavior as it differs from the default behavior.	 These
		    System V differences are presented under SYSTEM V  section
		    headers.

		 o  The	 man  page  documents behavior compliant with IEEE Std
		    1003.1-1988	(POSIX.1).

DIAGNOSTICS
       Upon termination	each command returns two bytes of status, one supplied
       by the system giving the	cause for termination, and  (in	 the  case  of
       "normal"	 termination)  one  supplied  by the program, see wait(2V) and
       exit(2V).  The former byte is 0 for normal termination, the  latter  is
       customarily  0  for  successful execution, nonzero to indicate troubles
       such as erroneous  parameters,  bad  or	inaccessible  data,  or	 other
       inability  to cope with the task	at hand.  It is	called variously "exit
       code," "exit status" or "return code," and is described only where spe-
       cial conventions	are involved.
