     sorting tools, file manipulation commands system status commands, remote file copy commands, mail com-mands, commands,
     mands, compilers and compiler tools, formatted output tools, and line printer commands.

     The exit values and their meanings are explained in the individual manuals.  Traditionally, the value 0
     signifies successful completion of the command.
