NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

       intro - Introduction to commands

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

       Section  1  describes the commands available for all Tru64
       UNIX users.

       Some reference pages in this section may contain  suffixes
       to  allow  their files to exist with those of other reference
 pages having the same base name and  section  number.
       When  used,  suffixes  are made up of one to four letters.
       See the man(1) reference page for more information on suffixes.

       Commands  related  to system maintenance appear in Section

ERRORS    [Toc]    [Back]

       On 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.  For more information, see exit(2).  The
       first byte is 0 for normal termination; the second byte is
       customarily  0  for successful execution. A nonzero status
       indicates a problem, such as erroneous parameters, or  bad
       or inaccessible data. The status value is called variously
       exit code, exit status, or return code, and  is  described
       explicitly  on  reference  pages only when special conventions
