Yes, they're called "commands" or "programs" or "software".

People tend to forget that before all a shell is a command line

If you're finding yourself writing complex shell functions that
don't make use of external commands, then you're heading the
wrong direction with your shell, or you are heading in one
direction with the wrong medium (i.e. you need a programming
language, not a shell).
