PowerCmd offers support for all MS-DOS command. Even more so, it combines the functionality of CMD tool with other Windows features. For example, in order to view the contents of a document, the user can simply type the full file name in the command prompt, and PowerCmd will automatically open their default text editor assigned to open such files.
