List of Command Line Utilities ?

where can I find a list of all command line utilities with a short description?

I just learned  about %RCMP,  %RFIND
I know of JOURNAL, DATABASE, BACKUP, RESTORE

But I expect more to be available and I would like to know more about it.

Hi

Follow this link to the InterSystems Documentation. It details many utilities that can be run from the Cache Terminal. Those that start with a '%' character can be run from any NameSpace. Those without will typically only run in the %SYS NameSpace

https://cedocs.intersystems.com/latest/csp/docbook/DocBook.UI.Page.cls?KEY=GSTU
 

Bear in mind that many command line utilities have been encapsulated in the  %SYS, %SYSTEM,  %SQL, %Dictionary and other system Packages.

Most of the functionality of the Management Portal is linked to underlying classes and most of them have Methods that can be called programmatically; for example creating resources, roles and users in the security module. Most database and Namespace functionality can be accessed through the %SYS and %SYSTEM packages

If you are looking for specific functions that you would like (if they exist) please list them and I'll see if I can point you in the right direction

In addition to Nigel's answer.:

A central list of all routines doesn't seem to exist.

But: Search the Documentation for CHUI and you will be surprised.
