Explanation: Cmd.exe is the command line interpreter on OS/2 and on Windows NT-based systems (including Windows 2000, XP, and Server 2003). It is the analog of command.com in MS-DOS and Windows 9x systems, or of the shells used on Unix systems. cmd.exe improves on command.com in several areas. It has a greater number of built-in commands, and the error reporting is better. In the OS/2 version of cmd.exe, errors are reported in whatever the current language of system is, their text being taken from the system message files. The help command can then be issued with the error message number to obtain further information. Both the OS/2 and the Windows NT versions of cmd.exe have more detailed error messages than that of command.com.
