List of Commands


        Welcome to the FreeCOM Home. Here you will find the current release of the Command Shell in ZIP format, patches, a To Do List, Wish List, Contributers List and information on what has been done lately. The FreeDOS Command Shell was first started by Tim Norman circa 1994. He stopped maintaining the project May 26, 1998, that's when John Price took over. This software is part of The FreeDOS Project and is released under the GNU GPL. There currently is a mailing list for the FreeCOM Project, for more information, try here. The goal of the FreeCOM Project is to provide a 100% compatible DOS command line interface [compatible to other, more "standard" DOS CLIs].

        The Shell supports the following features, to name a few:

  • Environment handling with prompt and path support;
  • Command-Line history with DOSKEYish abilities;
  • Batch File Processing;
  • Alias support; and
  • Filename completion support.
