Take Command description
A powerful Windows GUI command interpreter
Take Command is a useful command line tool that gives you a new approach to working in Windows, bringing users the power of the command line and the ease of use of the Windows interface.
Take Command supports existing CMD.EXE commands and batch files, and adds thousands of new features, giving you more power and flexibility than you ever imagined.
Take Command adds features such as extensive context-sensitive online help, aliases for commonly used commands, a powerful command line editor, history recall, filename completion (even across a network), popup command and directory history windows, and extended directory searches that can take you to any directory on your system by entering only part of its name.
Take Command expands the Windows file handling commands, giving you the ability to copy, move, delete, or list multiple files with a single command, and adding FTP and HTTP support (including SSL).
You can select or exclude files from any command by their date, time, size, and extended wildcards for extraordinary flexibility.
Batch file users will be amazed at the power and speed Take Command adds to Windows batch files, with an array of new batch commands and a powerful batch debugger with single stepping, breakpoints, syntax coloring, popup variable windows, and editing.
The extended batch language in Take Command includes subroutines, DO statements, IF THEN ELSE statements, SWITCH statements, error handling, more than 120 internal commands and over 200 internal variables.
And if you don't like the default behavior, Take Command allows you to adjust its configuration either through interactive dialogs or on the command line.
