In my experience, people that I've met, who think that the world
starts at "My Documents" give a blank stare when I start talking
about writing programs myself. Word "compilation" is a buzzword.
IMHO you can remove this :)
No wait. Actually it contains an information I didn't know about(*) -
namely - what is %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH%, so maybe just rephrase this:
Replace "One way to name ..." with
---- "To set current directory to your "My Documents" folder type: cd %HOMEDRIVE%%HOMEPATH% this can be useful if you got lost in the directory tree" ---- (*) I feel like I should explain myself - I removed windows partition from my hdd in 1999, and currently I use windows only occasionally in vmware :) -- Janek Kozicki |
