Another trick is "show xx*" which shows the matching variables.   

Of course, that doesn't work unless you remember the prefix.  I often 
use it for "show bo*" to remember what the boot variables are called 
and/or see what they are set to. 
I suppose if you were really desperate you could do a search, something 
  show a*
  show ab*
  show ac*

Conecting up a serial cable from a working system may be easier. :)
