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.)
Also:
C:\Users\dick>dir "/Users/dick/documents" /w
Volume in drive C is Windows
Volume Serial Number is 30E6-9CD1

Directory of C:\Users\dick\documents

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
C:\\home\\dick\\tomcat\\long\\path
"Argh! Seriously!?  I have to change that." -- Living half my life on
Linux, I really refuse to allow \\ in one of my text files.

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.
