Take Command is a shareware command console replacement for windows, which also includes the cmd.exe replacement TCC. There is a free version of TCC, called TCC/LE One of the most useful features is aliases, like DOSKey aliases or whatever, but better.
Below are my aliases, sorted alphabetically. This is a work in progress.

I had explinations written here, but as I've been working on this again, I got tired of constantly having to change and rewrite them.
Many of these should be rather self explanitory. Some are variations of aliases I found in the JPSoft forums, or the documentation.
Some are just to create shortcuts for commands or deal with mistakes of mine or habits, such as typing edit or nano to edit a file.
Others are workarounds. For instance I created pshell because I'm running an older version that doesn't have pshell as a command.
For the ones that require particular tools, they are linked below. Some are free, some are not.
