npm commands

npm.commands[<command>](args, callback)

npm comes with a full set of commands, and each of the commands takes a similar set of arguments.

In general, all commands on the command object take an array of positional argument strings. The last argument to any function is a callback. Some commands are special and take other optional arguments.

All commands have their own man page. See man npm-<command> for command-line usage, or man 3 npm-<command> for programmatic usage.
