    Thats a tough one...

    I think you can try '?', that might do it, else, I have a site to recommend:

    http://www.computerhope.com/msdos.htm

    Theres more that just a listing of DOS commands/syntax, theres also help and information of .bat (batch) files, and more.

    Call for HELP while at the command prompt, you'll be rewarded with a list of commands.

    The help at the command line is far from all the commands

    I didn't say it was all of them. It is a nice start though.

    I don't think there is a way to find all of them... you can write your own command-line program and your OS wouldn't know it existed until it was called from the command line... then it would only exist while it was running

    Thanks.
    In win2k/winxp there's ntcmds.chm in the %windir%\help directory that contains a section with a full command line reference. For quick, direct access you may wish to create a shortcut with something like:
    Code:
    %windir%\hh.exe %windir%\help\ntcmds.chm::/ntcmds.htm
    in the edit field labelled Type the location of the item: when creating the shortcut. Or just type hh ntcmds.chm::/ntcmds.htm at the command line to open it up at the relevant section.

    I like finding little MS easter eggs in DOS...staying up at all hours trying -a, -b, -c, /a, /b, /c, etc. until I find something not documented in the Help. Its kinda like when you forget to put the jello back in the fridge. I think.
    Weeel, itss aboot tieme wee goo back too Canada, eeehy boyss.
