CMD: Windows Autoexec
AUTOEXEC.BAT was automatically executed when people used to run DOS.
We do not have that facility in Windows anymore, but this is a
stop-gap for it.
When running a toolchain without Powershell or Bash, it was historically important to me to be able to libraries, tools and utilities and tools for development.
I still use this setup on any Windows machine I work on. I was complaining about the lack of command line tooling available for development on Windows, but I have started to work with the system than against it. I maintain this Git repository periodically.
This is my DotFiles for Windows.
git cloneor extract this repo into a directory called
CMDin your home directory. Such as
README.MDfile should be within it. Now just click and open the
AUTOEXEC.REGregistry entry. It will add the registry entries in that file into your registry.
Open a new Command Prompt and now
AUTOEXEC.CMDfile will run automatically.
