Hmmm...I downloaded this and gave it a whirl -- it seems that it implements
many of the *shell* features of the NT cmd.exe (exended options for
FOR loops, etc, etc) but it does not create its own window with a scrollbar.
It appears within the standard Win95 window (the one with the useless
menubar, and no scrollbars). It seems that Win95- and WinNT-
cmd.exe are much like traditional unix shells. They need a window provided
by a different program in which to operate -- just like you run bash in an
xterm or rxvt window. So, does anybody have a clue as to what program
provides the terminal window for cmd.exe / under Win95?
