Assorted NT/2000/XP/.. CMD.EXE Script Tricks
From the html version of the tscmd.zip 1cmdfaq.txt file
To the Description and the Index

This page is edited from the 1cmdfaq.txt faq-file contained in my tscmd.zip command line interface (CLI) collection. That zipped file has much additional material, including a number of detached .cmd script files. It is recommended that you also get the zipped version as a companion.

Please see "The Description and the Index page" for the conditions of usage and other such information.

21} Do you have pointers to additional script material and tips?

Yes, some. But since the links to outside material may (or may not) be transient and volatile in nature I will rather point to a web page of mine carrying references to programming material. Link directly to http://www.netikka.net/tsneti/http/tsnetihttpprog.php#cmdscript

Where do I find a detailed command-line reference? (The steps below pertain to XP only)
  Left-click "start" in the Taskbar
   Click "Help and support"
    Enter "Command-line reference" into the Search window
     Two suggested topics should appear
      Choose from "Overviews, Articles and Tutorials"
       Click "Add to Favorites" to quickly locate the item in the future

Here are some other useful NT/2000/XP CMD.EXE command line scripts programming pointers and links related to this FAQ

  Windows own command-line reference also: hh C:\WINDOWS\Help\ntcmds.chm
  The location may vary depending your particular configuration.
  If so, try the included WHEREIS.CMD script.
  On post-XP systems you have to copy ntcmds.chm from an old PC with Windows XP
  Or see Microsoft Windows XP - [Online] Command-line reference
