 wait(1) -- await completion of process
    Wait for your background process whose process id is n and report its termination status. If n is omitted, all your shell's currently active background processes are waited for and the return code will be zero. The shell itself executes wait, without creating a new process.
 X11/wait4wm(1) -- waits for the window manager
    wait4wm ensures that the window manager has been started before allowing other clients to open windows. This is appropriate at the beginning of a login session so that the window manager is able to control window placement.
 wakeupat(1) -- request that system power back on at a future time
    wakeupat allows you to specify a time at which the system will power on by itself. Currently only Indy, Indigo2, OCTANE , O2 and Challenge M support this feature. The syntax for specifying the time is identical to that of the at(1) command. If the system is rebooted after this command is used, the wakeupat time is cleared and must be reissued. If the system is not powered off before the given time, the command has no effect (that is, the system will not power back on as soon as powered off). Sys...
 wall(1) -- write to all users
    wall reads msg_file (or its standard input if none specified) until an end-of-file. It then sends this message to all currently logged-in users preceded by: Broadcast Message from ... If the -g option is used then only those users in the specified group as defined in the file /etc/group or the NIS group map are sent the message. The list of logged-on users is derived from the file /var/adm/utmp. It is used to warn all users, typically prior to shutting down the system. The sender must be super-u...
 wbinfo.1(1) -- Query information from winbind daemon
    This tool is part of the Samba suite. The wbinfo program queries and returns information created and used by the winbindd(8) daemon. The winbindd(8) daemon must be configured and running for the wbinfo program to be able to return information.
 wc(1) -- word, line and byte or character count
    wc counts lines, words, and characters or bytes in the named files, or in the standard input if no names appear. It also keeps a total count for all named files, if more than one input is specified. The wc utility considers a word to be a non-zero length string of characters delimited by white space.
 wchrtbl(1) -- generate character classification and conversion tables for ASCII and supplementary code sets
    wchrtbl creates tables containing information on character classification, character conversion, character set width, and numeric editing. The first table is a multi-byte-sized array encoded such that a table lookup can be used to determine the character classification of a character, convert a character [see ctype(3C) and wctype(3W)], and find the byte and screen width of a character in one of the supplementary code sets. The size of the arr...
 webdist(1) -- Web Software Distribution Tool
    Given an Inst software distribution directory, webdist automatically generates the HTML for a Web Software Distribution page. With a Web Software Distribution page, a user can choose and install the Inst products in a distribution directory using a Web interface. An Inst software distribution directory contains products that can be installed using the SoftwareManager(1M) or Inst(1M) installation programs. The distdir argument is used to specify the pathname of the software distribution directory...
 webjumper(1) -- tool to make URL icons (jumpsites) for the World Wide Web
    The WebJumper tool lets users create and modify "webjumper" or "jumpsite" icons. A jumpsite is a three-line text file containing an SGI designator, an optional description, and an URL. Opening (doubleclicking) a jumpsite will cause a specific World Wide Web site to appear in the user's default Web browser, such as Netscape or Mosaic. WebJumper can be launched from the toolchest (Internet > Create a WebJumper) or from a Unix shell command line. Like most applications, WebJumper's icon can b...
 websetup(1) -- WebFORCE product support tools
    /usr/WebFace/Apps /usr/WebFace/Source /usr/WebFace/Tasks Internet Gateway source tree hierarchy /usr/WebFace/bin /usr/WebFace/lib support tools and libraries
 what(1) -- identify SCCS files
    what searches the given files for all occurrences of the pattern that get(1) substitutes for %Z% (this is @(#) at this printing) and prints out what follows until the first ~, >, new-line, \, or null character. For example, if the C program in file f.c contains char ident[] = "@(#)identification information"; and f.c is compiled to yield f.o and a.out, then the command what f.c f.o a.out will print f.c: identification information f.o: identification information a.out: identification informati...
 whatis(1) -- describe what a command is
    whatis looks up a given command and gives the header line from the manual section. You can then run the man(1) command to get more information. If the line starts `name(section) ...' you can do `man section name' to get the documentation for it. Try `whatis ed' and then you should do `man 1 ed' to get the manual. whatis is actually just the -f option to the man(1) command.
 whereis(1) -- locate source, binary, and or manual for program
    Whereis locates source/binary and manuals sections for specified files. The supplied names are first stripped of leading pathname components and any (single) trailing extension of the form ``.ext'', e.g. ``.c''. Prefixes of ``s.'' resulting from use of source code control are also dealt with. Whereis then attempts to locate the desired program in a list of standard places. If any of the -b, -s or -m flags are given then whereis searches only for binaries, sources or manual sections respect...
 which(1) -- locate a program file including aliases and path (csh only)
    Which takes a list of names and looks for the files which would be executed had these names been given as commands. Each argument is expanded if it is aliased, and searched for along the user's path. Aliases are taken from the user's .cshrc file. The current value of path is used. The -a option reports all instances rather than just the first one. With the -f (fast) option, which ignores the .cshrc file....
 who(1) -- display who is on the system
    who can list the user's name, terminal line, login time, elapsed time since activity occurred on the line, and the process ID of the command interpreter (shell) for each current UNIX system user. It examines the /var/adm/utmpx file to obtain its information. If file is given, that file (which must be in utmpx(4) format, and must have the filename end with the letter x) is examined. Usually, file will be /var/a
