Wherefore art thou Master Command Index?

With the recent upgrade of the 12.4 documentation, the 12.4 Master Command List was broken into sections based on alphabetical order.  This means that you are no longer able to do an ‘in page’ search of all of the commands.  You either have to know what letter the command starts with or search multiple pages.  The ‘workaround’ to this was to use the 12.3 Master Command List. 

Alas, that too has been segmented into multiple pages.

Recently minted CCIE #21236 found where the old skool Master Command Index is hiding:

I noticed right before my test that that list was missing, but it still there, just moved.  Goto 12.3, then the 12.3T references, then the link is at the very bottom.

If you open the 12.3T documentation and use the Master Index, then you can hit this page.

I don’t know how long this will be around though.  It looks like we’re going to have to get used to the fact that ‘mining the DOCCD’ is going to be a bit more difficult going forward.  Hopefully Cisco will make PDFs available with all of the commands so that there will still be one place to search through all of the commands at once.
