You can access the manual (man page) for all (well, most) commands by running man COMMAND-NAME in Terminal.

comment Do I need to set up individual Apple IDs for all my kids' iPads?
Answers on Ask Different need to be more than just a link. It's okay to include a link, but please summarize or excerpt it in the answer. The idea is to make the answer stand alone.

Where did you install it from (and which package did you pick)? What does ls -d /usr/texbin in Terminal return?

comment Restore a lost partition from degraded software mirror RAID
Can you add some more details? Also I don't assume that you used all of the applications listed, so describing how you used one of them to recover your data might be of interest for a broader audience.
