Yori: CMD reimagined
Yori is a CMD replacement shell that supports backquotes, job control, and improves tab completion, file matching, aliases, command history, and more. It includes a handful of native Win32 tools that implement commonly needed tasks which can be used with any shell.
Compiling currently requires Visual C++, version 2 or newer. To compile, run NMAKE. Once compiled, YMAKE.EXE allows for more efficient subsequent compilation, using all cores in the machine.
Yori is available under the MIT license.
For the core shell and components, NT 3.1 or newer for 32 bit; XP 64 or newer for 64 bit. Individual features may require newer versions. Note the ysetup.exe installer works best with NT 4 and IE 4 or newer.
To install on older versions:
|95, 98 or Me||These releases are not supported and extensive changes would be required to execute on them.|
|NT 4 with IE 3||Installer cannot create shortcuts, they must be created manually|
|NT 4 with IE 2||Install the wintdist.exe redistributable which contains the IE 3 wininet.dll before running the installer. The installer cannot create shortcuts.|
|NT 3.5x||Install the wint351.exe redistributable which contains the IE 3 wininet.dll before running the installer. The installer cannot create program manager groups or items.|
|NT 3.1||No installer exists. Files must be copies to the machine manually.|
