Packed with a whopping 81 UNIX commands,  here's the complete set of man 
pages for UNIX v5...


Worth having a look:

chmod (page 39) - Yeah, octal modes are a pain!...
dc (page 49) - What, no bc?... Nah, learn RPN, ya wimp!
diff (page 52) - "Jackpot!"?... Yup, I've seen it for myself.
goto (page 67) - Now you know the origin of the ':' command.
if (page 69) - Primitive flow control, pre-csh/Bourne shells.
shift (page 104) - Example of a shell script using the above.
tee (page 113) - "pipe fitting",... Yup, very descriptive.

Ah, the good ol' days...
