Here you will find a lot of small applications, you don't find on your desktop task bar. No starter is there but on your computer. You can use them only on the cli. All commands are connected to the man pages. So you can read how to use them.


Directory Description
/usr/sbin/ac ac -- connect time accounting; If the file /var/log/utx.log exists, a record of individual login and logout times are written to it by login(1) and init(8), respectively. The ac utility examines these records and writes the accumulated connect time (in hours) for all logins to the standard output.
/usr/sbin/accton The accton utility is used for switching system accounting on or off.
/usr/sbin/acpiconf The acpiconf utility allows the user control of the ACPI power management functions.
/usr/sbin/acpidb The acpidb utility is a debugger for the ACPI DSDT. It can parse and execute various AML methods and display the result.
/usr/sbin/acpidump The acpidump utility analyzes ACPI tables in physical memory and can dump them to a file.
/usr/sbin/adduser The adduser utility is a shell script, implemented around the pw(8) command, for adding new users. It creates passwd/group entries, a home directory, copies dotfiles and sends the new user a welcome message. It supports two modes of operation. It may be used interactively at the

command line to add one user at a time, or it may be directed to get the list of new users from a file and operate in batch mode without requiring any user interaction.

/usr/sbin/amd amd -- automatically mount file systems; This daemon is obsolete. Users are advised to use autofs(5) instead.
/usr/sbin/amq amq -- automounter query tool; The amq utility provides a simple way of determining the current state of the [amd(8) program. Communication is by RPC. Three modes of operation are supported by the current protocol. By default a list of mount points and automounted file systems is output. An alternative host can be specified using the -h option.
/usr/sbin/ancontrol ancontrol -- configure Aironet 4500/4800 devices; The ancontrol utility controls the operation of Aironet wireless networking devices via the an(4) driver. Most of the parameters that can be changed relate to the IEEE 802.11 protocol which the Aironet cards imple ment. This includes such things as the station name, whether the station is operating in ad-hoc (point to point) or infrastructure mode, and the network name of a service set to join. The ancontrol utility can also be used to view the current NIC status, configuration and to dump out the values of the card's statistics counters.
/usr/sbin/apm apm -- control the APM BIOS and display its information; The apm utility controls the Intel / Microsoft APM (Advanced Power Man agement) BIOS and displays the current status of APM on laptop PCs.
