  1. Ah, Help Function, my old nemesis. We meet again.

  2. Rather fond of DOS commands myself. Bare bones cryptic computing. Limited, but what it does, it does well. I have a number of batch files I wrote recently to create differential backups of terabytes of data, daily. xcopy is your friend.

  3. Ah but you see, this is nothing so mundane as a pure command line. No, this is where someone came along and tried to shoehorn a GUI over the top of a command line, leaving you with lots and lots of little pop up boxes that do all sorts of things… but nothing clearly.
