    I was playing today with terminal on my phone and there is some commands I know from unix that I could execute.

    I wanted to find the boot time but I couldn't get it with Unix command and I found that on QNX you could get it with "pidin info" command which is for QNX only.

    I also read of other QNX commands but I couldn't execute them on BlackBerry 10

    It could be fun if we know of some QNX commands that could be tried on BlackBerry 10. Anyone knows?

    That would be interesting. The thing you'll be up against is that QNX is designed from the ground up to be highly customized when installed. Any commands not needed for the delivered system are usually removed to save space.

    But by all means it would be informative to have a list or QNX specific commands that are available to the user.

    That's exactly what I thought too. But there has to be some commands as you say that were left there. I wish if we could find them or build the list up by our selves then lol

    BGshellPlus will let you enter commands. I know you can do routine stuff like sftp, ifconfig, ls, cd, etc.

    Qnx Teminal? I dont think so, your probably using an app that has linux commands that will allow you to browse and moove some files. Commands will be similar to busybox

    I have to disagree. I've used the SDK to get a terminal on the device when needed. There is a description of two ways to do this here.

    Also, BB10 carriers the QNX version of a standard ANSI terminal definition as documented here.

    I'm using System Information app http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ntent/25894894 which is not exactly a terminal but this is not the point. It enables you to execute commands

    I just tried this app,
    echo $PATH and you get literally $PATH
    Pwd does not work?

    BGshellplus as stated by other poster is better - only app I found useful for command line although its annoying the way alt and shift work differently.

    Try the methods suggested by the other posters

    The app your using wont do what you want. Not sure how BGshellplus is working but had some limited success with it

    When you connect using the development tools you can do a number of things including this:

    The command mmcli is a QNX command.

    Of course the capabilities of the devuser are going to be different than an installed application. But you shouldn't confuse limitations of the program providing the shell with what the program could provide if written differently.

    If I remember correctly there's a text editor on the device; once you find a terminal, try "elvis". It's a vi clone.

    Yup, elvis is there. So is pidin and you can run it. OP, try the full path "/bin/pidin info"
