10.3: See all possible BSD commands in the Terminal
Authored by: jms1 on Nov 13, '03 01:04:36AM

For those (like myself) who prefer tcsh, the same thing can be done using CONTROL-D. For example, typing "m" followed by ^D will show you all commands starting with m... or "mk^D" shows all commands starting with "mk".

There is no simple way to make it show ALL commands- pressing ^D on an empty command line will either log you out, or if you have "set ignoreeof" in your .tcshrc file it prints 'Use "logout" to logout.' This is because in *nix the ^D character means "end of file", and some shells treat an interactively-typed ^D the same way they would an end-of-file when executing a script... they stop running.

Have you tried ctl-X ctl-D ?
