Huh, I never considered command.com to be part of the OS.
(But I would say that it is an important part of the OS, which by 
definition is part of the OS. My brain is broken.)

Certainly far superior to command.com.  Before that existed, I started 
with cygwin bash.  I have no reason to open a command.com shell.
Windows 10 has Ubuntu bash now.  Even less reason to learn powershell. ;)

The internet takes full credit for that and demeans you for conceiving 
that there could be otherwise.  And you're fat (or skinny).

I see backslashes:  One of the eclipse/tomcat quick fix hints is to add
"Argh! Seriously!?  I have to change that." -- Living half my life on 
Linux, I really refuse to allow \\ in one of my text files.

> As for "ftfy": Nope, I didn't misspeak, mistype or whatever.

Sorry. Got it.

I focused on povray and python and calling one from the other and did I 
mention I hate backslashes in paths?
Dick from the internet says they're evil.
