Take Command for OS/2

Release date: 
Thursday, 16 October, 2003



Authors/Port authors:

Take Command brings the power and convenience of the popular 4DOS  and 4OS2 programs to the OS/2 desktops. Whether you are a computer novice or an experienced user, Take Command will help you get the most out of your computer system.

You're probably already familiar with graphical applications running under OS/2, and with the command line, but you may not be used to seeing them combined in one product. Most graphical applications offer limited command-line capability at best, and most command-line utilities aren't designed for a graphical environment like the OS/2 desktop.

Take Command give you the best of both worlds. You'll probably find it most useful when you need to perform tasks like managing your hard disk, scripting a series of steps with an alias or batch file, or starting applications. There are graphical utilities that perform some of these tasks, but often you may find it more convenient or productive to perform them from the command line.

Take Command can use fewer resources than starting a traditional character-mode command-line session, and, unlike a traditional command line session, it looks and feels like the other graphical programs you use.

Take Command also offers a host of features that couldn't exist at all in a command-line utility. For example, you can pop up simple dialogs from a batch file, pass keystrokes to other graphical applications, and use a dialog to find files or text on any of your disks.

This software is distributed as compressed package. You have to download and manually install it; if prerequisites are required, you will have to manually install them too.
