suggested improvements[edit]

  • Mention the most common names for the most popular programs, now and in the past. In the lead section?
  • Overview of history of the concept/program since the 1950's.
  • Introduce concept of bases: hex, decimal, octal, binary, with examples.
  • Summarize or detail the commonly available switches.
  • Differences by OS (how are Windows versions different? Harder to access whole volumes or devices.)
