In general the command names are created from "left", "right", "up", or "down". "leftright" gives a double headed arrow. Prefacing with "long" gives a longer arrow. Capitalizing the first letter gives a double-shanked arrow.

Examples are

`\leftarrow``\Leftarrow``\longleftarrow``\Longleftarrow``\rightarrow``\Rightarrow``\longrightarrow``\Longrightarrow``\leftrightarrow``\Leftrightarrow``\longleftrightarrow``\uparrow``\downarrow``\Uparrow``\nearrow`points from southwest to northeast`\searrow`points from northwest to southeast`\swarrow`points from northeast to southwest`\nwarrow`points from southeast to northwest
