I'm not aware of any such document, but you can find general overview
in the ReadMe.txt file (list of packages and utilities included in the
FWTools) and collect more details from following resoruces:

1. OGR utilities

2. GDAL utilities

3. MapServer CGI program is called mapserv.exe

4. TIFF tools (fax2tiff, gif2tiff, etc.), see at the bottom of this page

5. PROJ.4 tools
