Hi Diego,

that list of commands can certainly be dispensed with, or at least moved to 
another disk in another drive if you have a two-drive system.

Possible exceptions that I have found useful are edit and dump, for editing 
scripts and viewing binary files respectively.

I would doubt that reboot would close any open files. How would it know 
which files are open? Still, it's a question the NitrOS9 team is better 
equipped to answer.
