Listing All Commands

Use the Commands command to list the names of all commands available in the software.

If the language you use uses localized command names these are listed together with the English command names.

You can list internal commands and commands provided by add-ons, for example commands defined in Lisp routines, or both.

To list all commands:

  1. Type Commands at the command prompt.
  2. Specify an option:
    • Internal. Lists command names native to the software.
    • External. Lists command names from add-ons.
    • Both. Lists internal and external commands.

    The names of the commands are listed in the command window.

Note: To list system variables, use the SetVariable command.
