INTRO(8)		FreeBSD	System Manager's Manual		      INTRO(8)

     intro -- introduction to system maintenance and operation commands

     This section contains information related to system operation and mainte-
     nance.  It	describes commands used	to create new file systems, newfs(8),
     verify the	integrity of the file systems, fsck(8),	control	disk usage,
     edquota(8), maintain system backups, dump(8), and recover files when
     disks die an untimely death, restore(8).  The format(8) manual for	the
     specific architecture the system is running on should be consulted	when
     formatting	disks and tapes.  Network related services like	inetd(8) and
     ftpd(8) are also described.  The section crash(8) should be consulted to
     understand	how to interpret system	crash dumps.

     All commands set an exit status.  Its value may be	tested to see if the
     command completed normally.  Unless otherwise noted (rare), the value 0
     signifies successful completion of	the command, while a value >0 indi-
     cates an error.  Some commands attempt to describe	the nature of the
     failure by	using error codes defined in sysexits(3), or set the status to
     arbitrary values >0 (typically 1),	but many such values are not described
     in	the manual.

     The intro section manual page appeared in 4.2BSD.
