PyCmd is a smart command prompt extension for Windows' cmd.exe; its purpose is to emulate a few power features of UNIX shells (decent Tab-completion, persistent history, etc.)
- Smart Tab-completion (similar to e.g. bash)
- Searchable, persistent command history
- Enhanced editing (copy/paste, undo, emacs key bindings)
- History of recently visited directories
For a long time I've been looking for a Windows shell with persistant history. This one offers a lot more and is very functional. Can cooperate with Console2 - I've set it as a default shell there. Lacks some features (one of them is incremental history search) but it is great all the same.
Neat tool that does a lot of things I had been wishing for. Downside: I lose the great CMD.exe cycling tab-completion. Pretty cool for a pre-1.0 product!
excellent replacement for the crappy cmd.exe. adding aliases and functions would be cool. probably easiest is to make them in python?
It is not a replacement for "terminal" - use Console for it. This is an enhancement of the shell (cmd.exe), and albeit it lacks some features as of version 0.4, it is very good at what it does. Makes you wonder why no one did this before.
Simple. Useful. Light.
Great app pycmd
