CMD Comparison

The comparison of commands available is based on the version of CMD included with Windows 10 and 11.

If the CMD command name matches an internal TCC command, the TCC command is almost always substantially enhanced.

* This is an internal command in TCC but an external command in CMD.

 

Command line editing

 

TCC offers vastly more sophisticated command line editing capabilities; see Command Line Editing for details.

 

Filename completion

 

CMD has a simple filename completion (with the tab key); TCC offers many more options, including server and sharename completion, customizable completion and (optional) popup window selection. See Filename Completion and Filename Completion Window for more details.

 

Command history

 

CMD has simple (optional) command history recall. TCC offers many more options, including loading and saving history lists, editing and moving commands in the list, searching for matching commands, and a popup command history window.

 

Redirection

 

In addition to the CMD <, > and |, TCC allows you to also redirect standard error, combine standard output and standard error, protect existing files from being overwritten by redirection, and redirect standard input using "here-documents". See Redirection for more details.

 

Wildcards

 

CMD only supports the ? and * wildcards in filenames. TCC adds character sets and regular expressions, and also supports wildcards in pathnames. See Wildcards for more details.

 

Built-In Variables

 

CMD has a few built-in variables (i.e., which are treated as environment variables but which do not exist in the environment):

 

CD - current directory

 

CMDCMDLINE - command line that started CMD

 

CMDEXTVERSION - the command extensions internal version number

 

DATE - the current date (in the default short format)

 

RANDOM - a random number between 0 and 32767

 

TIME - current time

 

TCC supports all of these built-in variables. (In TCC, CMDEXTVERSION will always return 2.) TCC also includes 185+ additional internal variables, 330+ variable functions, and 60+ command variables.

 

Unique TCC features

 

TCC includes many more features not in CMD, including:

 

 Batch debugger

 

 Aliases

 

 Internal functions

 

 User defined variable functions

 

 File selection

 

 File Ranges

 

 Conditional Commands

 Directory navigation and Directory History

 

 Histories and Logs
