In DOS, How can I tell what an internal command is and an external command is? I am not looking for a list of which ones are and which ones aren't...just how you can tell.

"There are two main types of DOS commands: internal and external. Internal commands are commands that are always loaded into RAM, or random-access memory, when you first turn on your computer. External commands stay on disk or diskette until they are needed."

Bruinaholic, didn't we answer that question here: http://www.geekstogo...o...76.html&hl=

Do you perhaps need assistance finding your previous posts at G2G?
