Good to see your interest in Texinfo.

Note that some of these commands sequences are TeX primitives, some
come from plain TeX, and others are Texinfo's own definitions.

Also note that a "command word" in TeX only has letters, so in
\vskip4pt the command is just \vskip.

If you are interested in analysing TeX files, some others to look at might
be plain.tex and LaTeX macros.  You might find them installed on your
computer under a directory like /usr/share/texmf/tex or /usr/share/texlive.
It could potentially be interesting to see which are the most used commands.
