Since you're in the C area, I presume you don't mean commands like sit, stay, or come.

This comes straight from the horses mouth:

If you mean DOS commands, just type help | more - this will give you the general list. Type help <cmd> | more where <cmd> is the command you want more info on. You can redirect output to a file like so:

help <cmd> >> commands.txt

Whether the email address is valid or not, trusting Microsoft to give you accurate information about C is like trusting your boss to give you a fair pay rise.

Earlier in this thread, someone posted a link to what appears to be a Brian Kernighan tutorial. That would be a good place to start. But you simply must get yourself a book on C. I recommend "The C Programming Language" by Brian W Kernighan and Dennis M Ritchie. It's available from all good bookshops. Dennis Ritchie wrote C. The only more authoritative documentation available is the ANSI C Standard, and Ritchie's book is considerably more readable.

Don't rely on one vendor's definition of C, or you will be bitten hard when you need to use some other OS or compiler.

if u r using turbo C then it has got complete index of all commands their use & portability. if u want that file then give ur email add & i will send it to u.
If u want a book i will suggest "Let us C" of "Yashwant Kanitkar". The best book of C covering mejor parts like graphics , mouse programming & computer hardware too with many i/o & other functions. Try it .....
Please reply

C has no support for graphics, mouse programming or most computer hardware. If you need to learn how to do these things, fine, but don't confuse learning these things with learning C.

C is a portable language. If you learn from a good C book, such as "The C Programming Language" (see earlier reply for details on this), you will gain a highly useful and portable skill. Don't fall into the trap of confusing the language with one increasingly rare implementation of it.
