Useful Commands

vbimport

#1

This is one for the bookmarks.


#2

they misspelled xcopy heh

but alot of those commands dont work the same in xp or 2k or might not even exist (like debug)


#3

yes, these are all listed possible commands, but not specified to which O/S some are limited to.

Nonetheless, still a very informative list, especially for beginners, IMO anyway.


#4

one of the good things about growing up in the DOS days are that i know the syntax of pretty much all those commands by heart

Also if a command doesn’t work as listed there try doing it with the /? switch

(ie do format /?) it will usually show you the syntax as well as the other switches it does (though some have hidden switches like fdisk with its /mbr command to rewrite the master boot record)


#5

Yes I too grew up in days of DOS but many visitors here didn’t.

Also the /? switch is only useful if you know the command itself.

Some simply don’t know FC (File Compare) but it can be very useful, especially when comparing sectors on protected games…etc…

I think its a rather useful bookmark, especially for GUI people.


#6

fc = diff? i didnt grow up in the dos days - unix junkie
