I would like to put together a dynamic list of OS concole command for Solaris, DOS and Linux console for people to have a quick reference point for higher level procedures.

The list I am trying to build is the command, explanation and syntax.

Can you guys please contribute you knowledge of the console commands to the list so that I can complete it. I already have a small list, but it is at work, so I don't have anything to add at this point.

Sure, post the list and I will add everything I can dig up. I still have my DOS reference manual on my shelf somewhere. UNIX too.....

hmmm, man commands get so big you can only do them at one time... here's what I would say.

Unix 'man' command followed by subject...

Windows 2k+ 'help' command.

Windows Me or less 'deltree' command

grep - regexp parser

find - locate a file, scans the raw directory tree
vi - awesome text editor
cd - change directory
ssh - secure shell client
man - manual pages
burncd - write data to an ATAPI burner

Linux console commands

compress compresses a file syntax: compress [options] filename

uncompress decompresses a file syntax: uncompress [options] filename

jar java compression and archive in one step syntax: jar [options] filename

vi text editor syntax: vi filename

viedit starts the text editor in show mode syntax: viedit filename

strings used to view readable text of an executable syntax: strings filename

file Displays the type of file syntax: file filename

That is all I can think of right now. Don't use Unix all that often, so I don't remember them by heart.:aacool:
