I posted this link in another thread, but thought a different title might help in searching. We'll want it again ... ;)

Changed and removed DOS commands in XP and XP64 (http://www.microsoft.com/resources/documentation/windows/xp/all/proddocs/en-us/dos_diffs.mspx?mfr=true)

And the easiest way to find it is to do a search for all threads started by Graham L. There will only be a small handful to wade through. ;)

Handy link, though the Microsoft page gives the impression there's less you can do from the command prompt.

For example the "for" help file is 154 lines, and "set" is 171 lines.

The handy thing about using the DOS commands is you'll know it'll generally will work on system without installing additional software, assuming the OS remains the same.
