Unfortunately, many of the command-line utilities in Mac OS X have no corresponding manpages, and documentation of any sort can be difficult to find. This appendix offers a quick reference to tools that may be helpful or interesting to Mac OS X system administrators and developers, but which have missing, incomplete, or inaccurate manpages.
Each of the following sections includes command syntax, a brief description, and the directory location of the command. (Note that some of these commands are available only if you've installed the Xcode Tools that comes with Mac OS X.) Table B-1 is a list of all the commands documented in this appendix.
