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/usr/sbin/amd amd -- automatically mount file systems; This daemon is obsolete.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.
/usr/sbin/arp The arp utility displays and modifies the Internet-to-Ethernet address translation tables used by the address resolution protocol (arp(4)). With no flags, the program displays the current ARP entry for hostname. The host may be specified by name or by number, using Internet dot notation.
/usr/sbin/ath3kfw ath3kfw -- firmware download utility for Atheros AR3011/AR3012 chip based Bluetooth USB devices; This utility will only work with Atheros AR3011 and AR3012 chip based Bluetooth USB devices. The identification is currently based on USB vendor ID/product ID pair.
/usr/sbin/audit The audit utility controls the state of the audit system.
/usr/sbin/auditd The auditd daemon responds to requests from the [audit(8) utility and notifications from the kernel. It manages the resulting audit log files and specified log file locations.
/usr/sbin/auditdistd The auditdistd daemon is responsible for distributing audit trail files over a TCP/IP network in a secure and reliable way.
/usr/sbin/auditreduce The auditreduce utility selects records from the audit trail files based on the specified criteria. Matching audit records are printed to the standard output in their raw binary form.
/usr/sbin/authpf authpf is a user shell for authenticating gateways. It is used to change pf(4) rules when a user authenticates and starts a session with sshd(8) and to undo these changes when the user's session exits.
/usr/sbin/authpf-noip authpf-noip is a user shell which allows multiple connections to take place from the same IP address.
/usr/sbin/automount When called without options, the automount command parses the auto_master(5) configuration file and any direct maps that it references, and mounts or unmounts autofs(5) filesystems to match.
/usr/sbin/automountd The automountd daemon is responsible for handling autofs(5) mount requests, parsing maps, and mounting filesystems they specify.
/usr/sbin/autounmountd autounmountd -- daemon unmounting automounted filesystems
/usr/sbin/bcmfw bcmfw -- firmware download utility for Broadcom BCM2033 chip based Bluetooth USB devices
/usr/sbin/bhyve bhyve is a hypervisor that runs guest operating systems inside a virtual machine.
/usr/sbin/bhyvectl bhyvectl -- control utility for bhyve instances
/usr/sbin/bhyveload bhyveload -- load a FreeBSD guest inside a bhyve virtual machine
/usr/sbin/binmiscctl The binmiscctl utility is the management utility for configuring miscellaneous binaries image activators in the kernel. It allows adding,

deleting, disabling, enabling, and looking up interpreters.

/usr/sbin/blacklistctl blacklistctl -- display and change the state of blacklistd
/usr/sbin/blacklistd blacklistd is a daemon similar to syslogd(8) that listens to sockets at paths specified in the sockpathsfile for notifications from other daemons about successful or failed connection attempts.
