Could it be possible to import all the man pages in to the wiki. That would give a lot of content to use and improve upon. Add examples etc. Also it would be VERY handy for referencing

I think the average man page is a waste of the reader's time and we should refrain from this. --ThorstenStaerk 20:39, July 13, 2008 (UTC)

Suggestion: Moving 'All Commands' to the top and separating it from the rest of the list, which could be defined as 'Commands by Category' or something like. As is, 'all commands' and all the rest of the commands are redundant, but are taking different approaches. The page's contents should reflect this.

What do we think of combining/revising 'Compressing files' and 'Uncompressing Files' into 'Compression Commands'? Most of 'Uncompressing Files' should probably be edited anyway - usage details, based on the general practice, belong on the specific command pages while that page is supposed to be just a link index with a 'man -k' vibe.

Oh yeah, and 'Disk and Tape Drive Commands' to 'Filesystem Commands'. Probably some other stuff. Digiot 18:10, Apr 10, 2004 (EDT)

How about an entry for stty

stty - used to set terminal characteristics. Most often used where backspace is not working. Usage: stty erase ^? (^? = the backspace key). See the man page for additional terminal characteristics.

just see stty --ThorstenStaerk 05:19, August 19, 2010 (UTC)
