DOSKEY

DOSKEY is a TSR designed to assist working from the command line by making it easier to edit the command line, by remembering previous commands, and being able to record macros.

Syntax:

To load DOSKEY:

DOSKEY [/Switches]

Switches

what  it does

/B:xxx

Sets the size of the buffer for macros and commands. The minimum value of xxx is 256 and the default is 512 (bytes). If DOSKEY is already running, it must be reloaded (with /R) when changing the buffer size.

/E:On|Off

Enables|Disables the display of commands when a macro plays. E(Echo) is On by default.

/F:filename

Retrieves filename - a text file containing a list of macros in the form Macroname=Text

/H

Displays all commands stored in memory. (This list will not be redirected to a file).

/I|O

Specifies whether text is entered in Insert or Overstrike mode by default. In either case the alternative mode can be selected by using <Insert> but the default is reset as soon as <Enter> is used. The default mode is Overstrike.

/K:xx

Sets the size of the keyboard type-ahead buffer. The default is 15 (characters). If DOSKEY is already running, it must be reloaded (with /R) when changing the buffer size.

/L

Sets the maximum size of the line edit buffer. The default is 128 (characters).

/M

Displays a list of all DOSKEY macros currently in the buffer. This list can be redirected to a text file using standard Dos redirection (>)

/R

Installs a new instance of DOSKEY. If DOSKEY is already running, the buffer is cleared of both macros and the Command Line history. Note that installing a new instance of DOSKEY does not remove the previous instance. Thus each use of /R takes another 5K of conventional/upper memory.

Macroname

The name of the macro. This is a string of one or more characters possibly modified by the Ctrl and/or Alt keys.

Text

The text string to be assigned to Macroname. This will typically be one or more DOS commands along with appropriate parameters and/or switches.


To create a DOSKEY macro:

DOSKEY Macroname=Text

To run a macro:
