Navbox conversionEdit

Trying a reorg of this. Thoughts? If it works out, will probably do the same to template:Unix commands. Chris Cunningham 09:50, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

The Navbox conversion was a great idea. Good job! Edurant 11:35, 2 August 2007 (UTC)

Whats the point of this navbox?Edit

Indexing Window commands? Or indexing windows commands that have an associated wikipedia article? Navboxes are used for the latter. For the former, either a "List of..." article or a category is used. Can't really decide what I want more - remove the unwikilinked commands or let them stay. Requesting comments. --soum talk 19:51, 11 April 2008 (UTC)

Keep! I agree it might not be that usefull right now with only some blue links, but it reminds people that there are still some Windows commands that don't have their own article (although they should have!). All we need to do is write some articles for those commands or - if possible - include the description of the Windows implementations into the article of the corresponding Unix commands with the same name, thus to creating platform neutral articles like cd (command), exit (command), mkdir etc. I'm planning to do this with more (Unix), sort (Unix) and whoami (Unix), just like I already did with alias (command).

The collectionEdit

Could we please add the Wikibooks commands : Cipher, Diskperf, Dnscmd, Eventcreate, Eventtriggers, Ipv6, Jview, Keyb, Mem, Nlsfunc, Scandisk, Typeperf ? JackPotte (talk) 12:43, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

I've just integrated them in the French version. JackPotte (talk) 15:55, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

forEdit

Article for_loop (link target) does not have any information about this command. -Yyy (talk) 12:35, 9 December 2009 (UTC)

IBM category?Edit

I believe that this template shouldn't categorize into Category:DOS on IBM PC compatibles because it doesn't talk about it. To my mind it would better make a subcategory of Category:MS-DOS/Windows Command Prompt commands, which is this template topic. JackPotte (talk) 19:05, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

I agree. I just removed Category:DOS on IBM PC compatibles from this template. We have Category:DOS commands and Category:Windows commands, shouldn't Category:MS-DOS/Windows Command Prompt commands just be a container category that only contains those two subcategories? I know there's a lot of overlap, but if we don't care to distinguish those commands that are in DOS but not Command Prompt, and vice versa, then we should just merge the DOS and Windows command categories into Category:MS-DOS/Windows Command Prompt commands.

joinEdit

Not sure why "join" isn't listed... AnonMoos (talk) 13:24, 17 December 2011 (UTC)

See below. There currently is no article about the join command to link to. Ghettoblaster (talk) 16:43, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

ftp and tftpEdit

ftp is included as a command in Windows, and tftp can be added as an optional Windows component. John-a-s (talk) 15:07, 29 July 2019 (UTC)

This is a known issue. These commands are currently not included in the Navbox just because there are no articles about these commands yet. The corresponding articles ftp and tftp currently only cover the underlying protocols. So either add some command related information in a subsection there, or start a new article on them. We already have this situation with the following commands: reg - Windows Registry, manage-bde - BitLocker, vssadmin - Shadow Copy, makecab & expand - Cabinet (file format), schtasks - Windows Task Scheduler, shutdown - Shutdown (computing), etc. Ghettoblaster (talk) 16:42, 29 July 2019 (UTC)
