Extend your command line capabilities with this powerful cmd.exe replacement

TCC/LE is an extension of the Windows command shell, cmd.exe, which offers many additional features, while also being compatible with your existing batch files and command line tools.

Open a TCC/LE window and at first it appears you're at the regular command line. The copyright message is different, the current folder is displayed in square brackets, but otherwise it looks the same. And it works in the same way, too, so you can immediately begin entering all the usual cmd.exe commands and they'll work the way they always did.

Start exploring these individual commands, though, and you'll soon spot differences. Try entering "copy /?", for instance, and you'll see many new switches, including /FTP for carrying out FTP ASCII copies. The DEL command gains several new switches, including one to send files to the Recycle Bin; the Copy command adds a Synchronise option, amongst others; and it's the same for every other command, with hundreds of additions in total.

A built-in scripting language means your batch files can be extended with loops, conditional testing, subroutines and more.

The ability to select files by date, time, size, extended wildcards, regular expressions and more makes it much easier to apply commands only where they're needed.

The TCC/LE command line supports command line and directory histories, and file and folder name completion, making it a much more comfortable place to work.

And if this isn't quite enough then TCC/LE can be extended with plug-ins to provide whatever new commands you need.

Please note, authors JP Software also produce even more powerful versions of the product with many extra abilities. Take Command, for instance, can run multiple sessions in tabbed windows (and you can have up to 25 startup tabs); has an integrated Explorer window for easier file management; includes a built-in file editor; has active scripting integration (Ruby, Perl, Python., VBScript); has new commands to send keystrokes to windows, monitor software and hardware evens, send email and network messages, and more. See the JP Software site for the details.


An interesting cmd.exe replacement which can help to make your command line life much easier.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
