 [LanX]: I want the command line in the history [tye]: -Mouse [Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file. [LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy [Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history LanX damns the cult of CB ;-) LanX WTF WTF WTF [LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts [LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history [LanX]: probably I need to teach the app to restart after C-c Kill
