Comparing Take Command and TCC/LE - CMD Replacement Shells

The default Windows command shell CMD has always been extremely limited in ability compared to the shells available in other operating systems such as Linux (which has bash, tcsh, zsh, etc.). And Windows CMD commands haven't changed significantly since their first appearance in Windows NT 3.1 (which was released in 1993). Because of these limitations, users have been forced to use the GUI for inappropriate tasks, or to write programs to perform simple tasks that CMD should have been able to handle (either from the command prompt or in batch files).

Take Command is our flagship product. For 25 years, JP Software has been helping advanced users, developers, system administrators, and technical support professionals save time and money, and ease their command prompt frustrations. Take Command offers a new approach to working in Windows, bringing users the power of the command line and the ease of use of the GUI. Take Command lets you display your Windows console (and simple GUI) applications in tabbed windows, with a Windows Explorer-like interface available for those times when you need a visual look at your folders and files.

Take Command is a complete CMD replacement. that provides you with a vastly better command line UI and thousands of features that are not available in CMD (or even in those Linux shells). And because Take Command is a superset of the CMD commands and syntax, you can install it and immediately be more productive. Take Command includes hundreds of major enhancements to CMD commands such as COPY, DEL, DIR, and START, more than 160 new internal commands, improved command line editing (including a variety of cut and paste options), advanced tab filename completion, and thousands of other new features. If you don't write batch files or need the full feature set, we also offer TCC/LE (a free but unsupported console-mode only limited version of our TCC command processor).

This table gives a brief overview of the features in the Windows 7 CMD, TCC/LE, and Take Command. There are far more features and commands in Take Command and TCC/LE than we can show here. See our Online Help for complete details.
