I have suggested this before, but here goes:

Allow explorer-like function of being able to drag files btwn
folders <-> list view

1. Option to append a space to completed filenames (not dirnames) anywhere on the command line. I've wanted that for years and I'd estimate that only 1 in 100 times I complete a filename do I want to continue without a space.

2. Don't update the title when it's not necessary (i.e., the new title is the same as the old). It causes flickering of the title bar and slows things down, especially in a vitrual machine (since VirtualPC emulates a pretty basic adapter and has no video acceleration).

I hope you remember my request sent 04.04.09 for complete support for
ISO 8601 date formats in TCC.

- A method to ease migration from one drive to another, including
- A method to update registry entries when their targets moved
- A method to update shortcut (.lnk) files when their targets moved
- A method to automatically refererence the various "standard folders"
(Program Files, Documents and Settings, etc.) when they are on an
alternate drive
- A system file (such as the ones that detect file system changes in CP) to
interpret TCC's directory aliases for use by any program
- Enhancing MOVE, COPY and SYNC to deal with hard links and soft links
(directory junctions); also symbolic links
- DWIM parser

There is not the remotest chance my putting any of those in the command
processor.

Ditto with this -- file system drivers are dicey and a support headache,
and IMO definitely do not belong in a command processor.

Not sure what you mean by this -- can you elaborate? (Note that any of
these would also require you to update to Vista.)

More likely than the first two requests!

TAB-expand file names in directories specified with variables (w/o first using [CTRL-x] <ctrl-x> to expand the variable):

%systemroot%\sy<tab></tab></ctrl-x>[TAB]<ctrl-x><tab> should work like
c:\windows\sy[TAB]<tab>

Well

1. The directory history being updated immediately I change to a directory and not only updated after changing away. This allows changing to the same directory with other multiple TCC sessions if the directory history is shared without having to do "CD -" twice.

2. Support for SFTP (and I mean with the SSH2 standard not the now obsolete SSH standard) with FTP.

Cheers and thanks

I second that request! I've been frustrated by this myself a few times.

%systemroot%\sy<TAB></TAB></CTRL-X>[TAB]<CTRL-X><TAB> should work like
c:\windows\sy[TAB]<TAB>
</TAB></TAB></CTRL-X>
I'd suggest looking into directory aliases, which can be initially defined using environment variables (and internal variables and functions, for that matter):

Code:
alias win:=%systemroot\
alias desk:=%userprofile\desktop\
alias docs:=%userprofile\my documents\
alias shell:=%@path[%_cmdspec]
and so on. I find aliases like these easier to type than environment variables, and filename completion expands them automagically.

Me too! I fiddle with the issue in my PRE_EXEC / POST_EXEC, but they give me
grief if I delete the immediate prior directory (what cdd - would switch
to).

I'm working on the design for Take Command v11; if you have any requests for new features please submit them to the Suggestions forum and/or the Support forum.

Thanks!
I'm handling it with an alias at the moment, but it would be nice if the IDE/BDEBUGGER commands spawned a new thread, returning the command shell to the prompt. For backwards compatibility, it would require either an argument (but then I'd still need an alias) or an Option flag (preferred).

Because I almost always stick with the console-only interface, I frequently use the debugger to edit a BTM. But if I want to look up something, the spawning shell is "busy" waiting for the IDE/BDEBUGGER command to return.

Yes, I'm able to spawn a new shell with ease, but it would be nice if I had the option so it didn't wait.

I suspect the above message actually contained some text from Rex, but was
delivered as shown above (except for the greater-than signs indicating the
quotation).

Rex,

Make TCC remotely installable as a service like http://www.dameware.com/products/dmrc/ Damewares Miniremote control.
Add a SSH server to it so I can be controlled in a save way.
And add SSH capabilities to TCC so that we have a way to use it in TCMD.
Right now I use Cygwin, and don't know any other good console programs that would run ssh(2) in TCMD.

And please add some Checkbox utilities. See this thread I've posted some months ago. http://jpsoft.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1077&page=2.
(Last post).

And last but not least, thanks for maintaining a brilliant product.

Directory navigation
(thinking as I type)

More control over extended directory search:
- easier to remove (& add) directory (trees)
- user ordered

Extend cd - to cd -[n] : n'th previous dir

Pop up of user maintained (named) list of directories (like dir history)
