The Windows “Command Prompt” shortcut is a Windows console (command line, or character mode) session that runs the default command processor CMD (also called the “Windows command shell”). The command prompt is essential for developers, systems administrators and advanced users. Unfortunately, CMD commands and the Windows console UI have always been woefully lacking in ability compared to what is available in most other operating systems. Because of the limitations in the Windows command prompt, users have been forced to use the GUI for inappropriate tasks, or even to write custom programs to perform simple tasks that CMD should have been able to handle.
Are you frustrated with the limitations of the CMD command line and batch scripting? Do you yearn for a real scripting language, and an integrated IDE and batch debugger? How about a Windows command processor that can do all of that, and still run your existing CMD prompt commands and batch files?
