ProCurve and HP E-Series hidden commands

Some vendors, like Cisco uses commands that are hidden, and undocumented. ProCurve has a complete command line interface mode with these commands and in this brief post, I will give you a glance of what everything can be found there. For this I used ProCurve/HP E-Series 3500 switch, on other platforms the commands can be different.
