39.Sh NAME
40.Nm intro
41.Nd introduction to general commands (tools and utilities)
42.Sh DESCRIPTION
43Section one of the manual contains most of the commands
44which comprise the
45.Bx
46user environment.
47Some of the commands included in section one are
48text editors, command shell interpreters,
49searching and sorting tools,
50file manipulation commands,
51system status commands,
52remote file copy commands, mail commands,
53compilers and compiler tools,
54formatted output tools,
55and line printer commands.
56.Pp
57All commands set a status value upon exit which may be tested
58to see if the command completed normally.
59Traditionally, the value 0 signifies successful
60completion of the command, while a value >0 indicates an error.
61Some commands attempt to describe the nature of the failure by using
62errors codes as defined in
63.Xr sysexits 3 ,
64while others simply set the status to an arbitrary value >0 (typically 1).
