The big table below, represents the core overlapping utilities from the following projects, and can be used to quickly see what's available where, as well as being a quick index to the online manuals for each command.
This is not an exhaustive list of commands and is based on the union of POSIX and the
associated GNU/Linux projects. Developer oriented tools are excluded, since
these aren't as widely used or distributed.
Also excluded are commands always implemented as shell builtins.
|GNU/Linux||GPLv3/GPLv2||GNU/Linux is structured as separate projects (and licences)|
|FreeBSD||BSD||The FreeBSD distribution|
|busybox||GPLv2||Reimplementation of standard GNU/Linux utils, targetted at embedded systems|
|toolbox||Apache2/MIT/BSD||Android reimplementation of these standard utilities|
|Mac OS X||BSD||Based closely on FreeBSD|
