Re the formatting - I think it doesn't look very nice to bold and italicise and whatever to all the different parts of a command, and it suffices to just explain below the example which is the command. Don't forget that the string with which the program was invoked itself is treated as an argument. Dysprosia 00:08, 20 Mar 2004 (UTC)

Well, I'm not going to immediately agree or disagree, but the convention does seem to be used in other parts of the wikipedia, like Adverb . Hmm, people should agree to 1 convention and stick to it. Sounds like the stuff holy wars are made of. ;-) I'll just wait it out and see what people agree on. 16:40, 22 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I think the formatting on Adverb is incorrect anyway - bolding should be reserved for the title of the article and italics should be used for emphasis. In any case, adverb isn't that comparable to command (computing)... Dysprosia 21:38, 22 Mar 2004 (UTC)

We need more on how to enter into command modes or command shells in various OS. I 'm (going to work right now but) looking to explain from pathping how to use this command to a computing newbie; I want to be able to reference a command window in an explanation of Start, Run, CMD <enter> ... umm... and might come back and do that. However. The article needs to explain how to get to a point at which you can use a CLI; that would be my main point. --Tagishsimon

That should probably be under command line interface, not here. Dysprosia 09:21, 18 May 2004 (UTC)[edit]
