apropos(String) -- symbols matching a pattern

Synopsis

Description

In the simplest case, the list of symbols containing the given string is returned.
i1 : apropos "atrix"

o1 = {ChangeMatrix, compactMatrixForm, diagonalMatrix, fillMatrix,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     genericMatrix, genericSkewMatrix, genericSymmetricMatrix,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     getChangeMatrix, Matrix, matrix, MatrixDegreeExpression,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     MatrixExpression, MinimalMatrix, MutableMatrix, mutableMatrix,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     randomMutableMatrix, submatrix, submatrix', submatrixByDegrees,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     sylvesterMatrix, SyzygyMatrix}

o1 : List
Regular expressions allow for more complicated requests. For example, to find all functions that start with mat or Mat:
i2 : apropos "^[mM]at"

o2 = {match, mathML, Matrix, matrix, MatrixDegreeExpression,
     ------------------------------------------------------------------------
     MatrixExpression}

o2 : List
