Chat with your friends through MS-DOS
1. All you need is your friends IP address and your Command Prompt.

2. Open your notepad and write tis code as it is.................. I would prefer you to copy this !

@echo off
:A
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A

3. Now save this as "Messenger.Bat".

4. Drag this file (.bat file)over to Command Prompt and press enter!

5. You would then see some thing like this:

MESSENGER
User:

6. After "User" type the IP address of the computer you want to contact.

7. Before you press "Enter" it should look like this:

MESSENGER
User: IP_Address
Message: Hi, How are you ?

MSDOS or just a command prompt? Just another win32 console application or a real 16-bit DOS executable?

This won't work in Windows Vista or Windows 7 as the send parameter is gone from net.

I remember using net send a long time ago, but its not really a chatting software. Its more like an alert, and the recipient can only click on ok, after reading the message.

I believe that there are lots of free network communication (chatting) softwares around, anyways, so why use MSDOS prompt?

overall it is a nice script, but I doubt anyone will really use it now.

To annoy people, naturally. And to mess about during class.

The operating system certainly isn't available any more, but you can still bring up a DOS prompt to issue commands to a Windows computer. To find it, hit Meta+R (or Start -> Run if you dislike keyboard shortcuts) and type cmd. Then after using it for a while, realize that you should be using CygWin instead due to the sheer suckiness of DOS.

That's command prompt though not MS-DOS (uses cmd.exe)

Bash is also a command prompt, but it's not called "command prompt", it's called Bash. "Command prompt" in Windows is simply the name given to the launcher: it is in fact an MS-DOS-based shell, hence everyone but the most picky refers to it as MS-DOS.

Also, post number 1000. Apparently that's something to celebrate or at least vaguely acknowledge.
