Software:

This part of the website has nothing to do with the Library – these pages about Windows command line tools originally belonged to my former and now defunct IT services website, and I have given them here a new home.

Here you find some links and information concerning the Windows command line, and a few tools that I've written, including the command line RPN calculator Hypatia.
