Part: V Appendixes > General DOS Messages

General DOS Messages

DOS messages can be divided into two groups: general error messages and device error messages. The three types of general DOS messages are as follows:

  • Error messages— These messages indicate that DOS has encountered a problem with a command or with the syntax you used. Execution stops when DOS displays an error message.

  • Warning messages— These messages tell you that the next action you take might cause unwanted changes to files or to your system; they often include a prompt, which enables you to select an action.

  • Information messages— These messages display needed information about your system's operation or your DOS version's performance. Like warning messages, these messages also often include a prompt.
