Changing the DOS prompt

I’m mucking about with VSS from the command line.

To do this you need to be in the VSS directory, which looks like this, for me:

C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual StudioVSSwin32>

This doesn’t leave much room for typing before the line starts wrapping.

This command:

prompt $d$g

Sets the prompt to:

31/08/2006>

Which is a bit better….
