Using DOSKEY

DOSKEY is a program that enables you to edit and reuse DOS commands without retyping them. The program also enables you to create new commands, referred to as macros, that can take the place of several DOS commands. Another benefit of DOSKEY is that it occupies only about 4KB of memory when loaded. The following sections explain how to load DOSKEY into your computer's memory and use the program's capabilities.

Loading DOSKEY

DOSKEY is a memory-resident program that was first available in DOS 5.0. This program enables you to easily edit what you enter at the DOS prompt. DOSKEY also maintains a running history of the commands you have entered. DOSKEY then enables you to reuse those commands without retyping them.
