Implicitely documented - "ls /usr/bin". ;-)

On the web, there are several blog pages or texts on Github
which explain how to use this kind of tools, but FreeBSD does
not (as far as I'm aware of) contain a kind of list that covers
text processing tools provided by the OS.

Add: sed, awk, cut, paste, maybe seq, of course sort, and
maybe include tools like rot13, md5 (as they _can_ be seen
as text processing tools, too).
