collection release 1.5: 5/28/2000

A collection of a few free utilities to make life at the Win9x/NT command line a bit easier and more flexible. Source code included.

CmdUtils currently include:

For more details, run each program with /? on the command line to list options and other information.

Usage notes:

I suggest that you place these utilities in a directory on your PATH -- Win95 users, try C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND (or the COMMAND subdirectory of your Windows directory, if it's not C:\WINDOWS). WinNT users, try C:\WINNT, or your WinNT directory, if you don't already have a utilities directory on your path.

If you find these utilities useful on a daily basis, feel free to rename them to make the names easier to type -- for example, pf.exe instead of PropsFor.exe; cm.exe instead of Context.exe, etc. However, please distribute them under their full names so that they can be more easily identified.

You can also use doskey to create aliases for these commands: doskey del=recycle $* will replace the del command with recycle.
