Information about “DOS EXTENSIONS 2 OF 2 (ALSO 585)”

An interesting series of extremely flexible and useful DOS enhancements.
These are not meant to replace standard DOS commands, but to add
versatility and utility as powerful supersets of these commands.

Features include: multiple file names on command lines; 16 new wild
cards; visual file selection; more useful file/system information;
retrieval of deleted files; measurement of elapsed time of programs or
commands, and directory sorting. These extensions can also be combined
to create new functions or process multiple files with one command.
