Interesting to have found that out. I rarely do much in 'cmd' (formerly
command.com) apart from ipconfig, batch scripts and the like. It's a
depressing CLI to work under and tools offered in this environments are
miserably lacking. It's like trying to mend some broken wires with a set of
scissors and a pencil.
