Does anyone know a website or know how to obtain a complete listing of all the unix commands with their options under the bash shell. This is a fairly easy question, I just dont have any time. Extra points if answered within the first hour. format: I need the command with a brief description and all the opitions with their corresponding descriptions. I dont want an output of the MAN pages. While there are hundreds of commands, I need a brief of what the Man pages does. Thanks fellow TECHIES.

Great job with the first one (oreilly), but before I give you the points, is there a way to get them all in one page. I need to have them as referrence. I appreciate your help. I will increase total points to 250 if this can be accomplished.

Thanks Junior161

great sites yuzh, but sunnycoder added a good answer before you did. I appreciate your response. You are a pro, I just noticed your ranking for the Unix part of the forum. Hopefully, I can ask you questions if I ever get stuck.
