    Nice Ass!

  27. Chris Lees said

    I’m a big fan of the 666 one and the C:\DOS\RUN one – I hadn’t seem them before. The others I’ve seen in various signatures and things.

  28. Cool…

  29. KahlilBlack said

    In DOS, the forward slash would only be used for switches as in DIR/W.

    Pathnames would use the backslash only. The backslash meant “directory”, basically. So the “proper” syntax would be:


    Note the space after the RUN on the third line. It’s implied that the first RUN is an executable, not part of the directory structure. RUN is not a native DOS command, but many of us built batch files (scripts) and it would not be surprising to find run.bat among them.
