Command descriptions have a format similar to function descriptions, except that the word `Function' is replaced by `Command'. Commands are functions that may be called without surrounding their arguments in parentheses. For example, here is the description for Octave's cd command:

Command: cd dir
Command: chdir dir

Change the current working directory to dir. For example, cd ~/octave changes the current working directory to ‘~/octave’. If the directory does not exist, an error message is printed and the working directory is not changed.
