Why did you put @ before evrything?

I made this when I was 11... I guess I didn't know what I was doing then...

jklujm (author)2011-01-03

You don't need @ before everything!

I have to leave your name on it? How would you stop me?

Padlock (author)2009-06-02

Ehhem. Wanna give the author any credit (at step 4?) (Btw thats me!!!)

Padlock (author)Padlock2009-06-02

Yah. They don't work very well...

rimar2000 (author)2008-05-29

VERY USEFUL, THANKS. I walked seeking information on the DOS commands, and I could not find them.

chuckr44 (author)rimar20002008-05-29

In a DOS window type "help" to get a list of commands. To get help on a certain command, type "cmd /?".

programmrz (author)chuckr442008-06-09

i only use command prompt i don't know about msdos

will421 (author)programmrz2009-05-02

They`re the same thing!

MasterMediaXD (author)programmrz2008-10-12

Hey we program batch and executable files (they're safe though) on our site http://mastermediaxd.co.nr & http://mastermediaxd-xtra.co.nr I have a fake antivirus! and many more downloads on http://mastermediaxd-xtra.co.nr

Command Prompt is the Windows version of DOS

chuckr44 (author)2008-05-29

Very nice. If your first line is "@echo off", which turns off the echo feature, you do not need to begin each line with "@".

programmrz (author)chuckr442008-06-09

are you sure

fwjs28 (author)programmrz2008-12-24
