Hi and Welcome to the HomeBlog of SavePathAndReturn

Hi and welcome to the blogging site of SavePathAndReturn, a Complete Set of Navigation Utilities for the Command Line.

My name is Daniel, and not too long ago, I had a concept for some DOS/cmd utilities and within two months, I had created SavePathAndReturn(c), UpAndDown(c), DisplayDirectory(c) and (coming soon) *Across(c) and *Misc. All of these utilites will enhance your experience at the command line, whether in 32 bit DOS/CMD.exe. Driven by being efficient as it’s main feature and reward, these 5 (*7) commands allow you to naviagate the command prompt by:

  • saving and restoring the pathnames quickly
    {**not to be confused with %PATH%, the PATH command or SET PATH=}
  • moving up and down the current directory efficiently and easily
  • c) showing non standard directories
  • d) not using files
  • e) non invasive use of the registry
  • f) very lightweight

Yes it is true that the commands only run in a DOS console, so the main ROI will be for those that live on the Command Line Prompt ( C:\> ). This could be Win 2k8 Server w/o GUI, NT DOS command, Win 8 CMD, or any command executable that has a 32 bit interpeter. At present there are no plans to make a 16 bit version, but I won’t say Never, all depends on interest from the CLI jockeys.

So Ping me back and let me know if you:

  1. Like the utilites
  2. Have a sensible suggestion
  3. Want to tell ushow you use the utilities
  4. Would like to donate to the cause
  5. Want more information

Thanks and many Happy Returns!
