Based on man-cgi by Panagiotis Christias.
intro -- introduction to general commands (tools and utilities)
Section one of the manual contains most of the commands which comprise
the BSD user environment. Some of the commands included in section one
are text editors, command shell interpreters, searching and sorting
tools, file manipulation commands, system status commands, remote file
copy commands, mail commands, compilers and compiler tools, formatted
output tools, and line printer commands.
All commands set a status value upon exit which may be tested to see if
the command completed normally. The exit values and their meanings are
explained in the individual manuals. Traditionally, the value 0 signi-
fies successful completion of the command.
