Plugins are user-written DLL's that allow developers to create new (or replacement):
- Internal commands
- Internal variables
- Variable functions
- Keystroke monitors
- UNKNOWN_CMD, PRE_INPUT, PRE_EXEC, and POST_EXEC aliases
Plugins will override existing internal names, so you can extend and/or replace commands and variables.
TCC Plugin SDK
The Plugin SDK includes all the files you need to develop plugins in C / C++ or Delphi. Documentation is in the ZIP file.
The following command prompt plugins are not written or supported by JP Software; please contact the developers directly if you have any questions. They are provided by JP Software strictly on an as-is basis, without warranty of any kind. The plugin authors can be reached on the Plugins forum. (Please contact us if you have created a plugin and want to list it on this page.)
- 4AUTOTRAY: Minimizes TCC automatically to the taskbar's notification area; does not work with TCMD. (Also provides the AUTOTRAY command).
- 4CONSOLE: Console utilities for TCC.
- 4CONSOLE64: x64 version of 4CONSOLE.
- 4UTILS: Command processor/batch related utilities, including regular expression search/replace.
- 4UTILS64: x64 version of 4UTILS.
- CHILL: This plugin provides a quick and intuitive interface to the Windows Task Scheduler service, much simpler (though far less powerful) than the SCHTASKS utility. The plugin adds a single command CHILL, which schedules a command to be run after a specified delay or at a certain time.
- ConSearch - adds a new, modeless popup dialog to search for text in the console's scrollback buffer. Options for case-insensitive, case-sensitive, and regexp searches.
- EVENTUTILS: Internal commands and variable functions to create, wait for or signal a Windows event.
- EVERYTHING: Locate files and folders instantly using the Everything search engine.
- FEDUTILS: A collection of calendar, conversion, encryption, system, and string functions.
- HISTWORD:: Insert words or lines from the history list into the current command line.
- HTAGS: Functions to create HTML tags and entities.
- HTMLDUMP: Dumps the console buffer to an HTML file.
- ISO8601: Extends Take Command's date-handling functions with new date formats; a larger date range, and more validity checking of input dates. Re-implements most date-related variable functions and adds several new ones, plus a few internal variables and commands.
- POPINFO: This plugin provides a quick way to check a file’s properties while composing a command line. When you press a hotkey, a popup message box will display the file’s size, attributes, date and time stamps, and a few other bits of information.
- PopupFix - makes TCC play nicely with Console2. If you're using Console2, this plugin should solve several issues. If you're not using Console2, it's probably useless to you.
- QCAL: A stripped-down version of the ISO8601 plugin, containing only the QCAL command and a (very) few functions. QCAL displays a quick-and-dirty calendar to the console or to standard output.
- SAFECHARS: Functions for reading and writing text which may contain characters having special meaning to TCC.
- SAY:This plugin provides a quick and intuitive interface to the Windows text-to-speech feature. The plugin adds a single command SAY, which speaks the text on the command line, a text file, or pipe.
- SYSUTILS: System related utilities, including registry, process, and window functions.
- SYSUTILS64: x64 version of SYSUTILS.
