Find AS/400 commands

I know there must be a command for this, but I just can't find it. Well, here's an easy way to find those lost commands.

This tip is useful to any AS/400 user (administrator, programmer, whatever). When trying to find an AS/400 command...

that you've forgotten, or trying to find one that you think 'There must be a command for this somewhere':

Eg. You know that the command has to do with configuration. Type 'GO CMDCFG' and all commands that concerns configuration will be listed.

Eg 2. You want to see all commands that concern files. Type 'GO CMDFILE'.

You can guess your way on until you find what you're looking for.

This may be a well known way of finding commands, but through the years that I have been working with the AS/400, almost everybody I show this is very grateful for the tip!
