Command Prompt / Console / Windows Subsystem for Linux

Shrouded in the mists of time, the Windows Console was created. For millenia, geeks and developers wrought their command-line tools but after a while, a great lacking was noticed. And so, legions of ever intrepid command-line mavens migrated to other shells and consoles, ’til but a stalwart few remained.

In Windows 10, with a deep rumbling, the ancient, weary, Windows Console heaved a great sigh and began to tremble. New features appeared, but slow was the (aparrent) progress.

But then, in early 2016, from under a rock evolved a group of new console dev’s. And then a PM. The journey to modernity had begun … again! WE’RE BACK! AGAIN!

  1. Preserve the formatting of the command window

    Pasting the contents of the clipboard loses all formatting - msbuild (and other programs probably) format (colourize) their output which makes them far more readable but only while it's in the command window.

    Preserving the formatting when copying would provide the same benefits in the event the command output is copied and pasted to a file

    • add new parsing command

      Batch is poor in parsing data...the only way to parse file or data is for loop it will be nice to add another powerfull command
