I am switching over from cmd.exe to TCC LE. I have some aliases files that I load using "doskey /macrofile=aliases.dat" command. typical entries in this aliases file use $t (The command seperator of cmd.exe) and $* (All parameters supplied in the command line) extensively. When I use this aliases file using "alias /r" command, later when I invoke aliases having $t or $* in it, TCCLE complains. Is there a way to make a single aliases to be used by doskey as well as TCC LE? This is needed because I need to work on others machines(no TCCLE), with my aliases(take it on a stick). Examples from my alias file: os=dir /os $* od=dir /od $* mc=md $* $t cd $* </pre> for example, when I type mc t1, it tries to create directories called $*, $t, cd, $* and t1.
