Replacement dos box for Windows - emacs shell mode

Posted in: Personal and misc, Linux, Microsoft

The Windows dos box (command prompt) sucks in many ways in comparison to an xterm (and I’m not even including ‘command’ vs ‘bash’ here). But if you have emacs you can make it suck a little bit less. “M-x shell” gets you shell mode, and you can select text etc, and use emacs keybindings for editing your commands etc.
