I meant some short summary, like library name, where i can find it (ROM or disk), which version of OS and what in short does it do.

I haven't come across a list like that, but it does sound like something that might be useful. I might look at adding it to AmigaCoding.com...

Edit: How does this look? I need to confirm some of the details at a later date when I have access to my own machines, but that covers most of the standard modules.

I was a kid when I had my 500+ - like 8/9 when I got it, and it was the only computer I had until around 1994 when we got our first PC.

So while I did follow a lot of magazine guides on AmigaOS stuff, I never got to truly understand how the OS was organised and working like I later did with the likes of Linux, for example.

So links like the one you posted above are a great intro list!

Cool, just bear in mind that I haven't yet verified it against my machines - I'm just going from the Autodocs and memory.

I remember spending a lot of time looking at the scripts on various magazine cover disks and learning a lot from them since they often used quite elaborate setups to squeeze everything onto them. Making my own bootable disks with menu systems and my own programs on them, I got to know what was essential and what wasn't, and just how much was available in ROM.

Just a / takes you to the parent directory.

Yep, and : takes you to the drive's root directory. AmigaDOS also has an implied CD function. If you enter the name of a folder without any command, it will CD to it. It's as if the directory was an executable.
