Post List of Commands for EV3
I've searched online and through the forums, but I haven't been able to find a comprehensive list of commands for the EV3.

Does anyone have such a list? Thanks!

You can find a list of the available EV3 online at http://help.robotc.net/WebHelpMindstorms/index.htm. Simply navigate to the section "Command Library - LEGO EV3" and pick whether you want Graphical, Natural Language, or Text-Based.

Thanks, this was exactly what I was looking for!

A follow-up question, is there a reason why even the simple text-based commands are different for the NXT and EV3? For example, for the NXT it's motor[motorA] = 50; while for the EV3 it's setMotorSpeed(motorA, 50);

I ask because, apparently, I've been using the NXT commands in my programs for the EV3. It's frustrating, because some of them are supported (ex: motor), but others are not (ex: nSyncedMotors).

My guess is that not all features that were in ROBOTC for NXT have been implemented for EV3 yet. Or maybe there are some NXT features that they can't/don't want to reproduce for EV3. As for the function renaming, I saw in a post on here by one of the developers that they are moving away from using "internal" commands like motor[] with the EV3 and using function calls instead.
