This package contains a set of command-line utilities. Each is available for OS/2 2.1 or higher, Win32, and DOS. The DOS versions are 16-bit; the OS/2 and Win32 versions are 32-bit. The OS/2 versions are more capable then their DOS counterparts (including support for HPFS long filenames and for extended attributes). However, users with systems that are configured for dual boot will find it convenient to have these commands available whether booting OS/2 or native DOS. In addition, users in a mixed OS/2, DOS, Windows 95, and Windows NT network environment will find it convenient to have these commands available on all platforms. These utilities support an enhanced filename pattern matching capability similar to that for OS/2 or Win32, only better. Unlike many command-line utilities such as the native commands for these operating systems, the same enhanced filename pattern matching is available in all of the versions of these utilities.
