Cisco Privilege Access

If I understand  Cisco has privilege levels from 0 to 15
Any expert out there to write the capabilities that a user can have in each Level.
For instance in Level 0 user can run the SHOW Running-config command, Level 1 can run the RELOAD command, etc... up to level 15.
Thanks

Cisco devices numbered 0 through 15 have 16 privilege levels. By default, any user who can furnish the user-level password or user name/password combination can gain User exec mode access to the device, which is privilege level 1. From there, if the user knows the enable secret password, they can access the Privilege exec mode, or privilege level 15. The three predefined privilege levels on Cisco devices include the following:

1 User exec mode only (prompt is router>), the default level for login

15 Privileged exec mode (prompt is router#), the Enable mode

0 Seldom used, but includes five commands: disable, enable, exit, help, and logout

To determine or confirm the current privilege level, type the show privilege command. It would look like this in Privilege mode:

Rtr1#show privilege
Current privilege level is 15
Rtr1#
Privilege levels 2 through 14 can be defined by the admin to provide limited features to some users by assigning specific commands to the level using the privilege command.

The syntax is

privilege mode {level level command | reset command}
