This article is about Command Line inside DOSBox. For DOSBox Command Line Parameters, see Usage.

The command line inside DOSBox is very similar to the one of a real DOS system, such as displaying the command-line prompt "C:\>" and waiting for user input. Nevertheless, the default initial drive of DOSBox is Z:, a Virtual Internal Drive, instead of A: or C: when booting from a real DOS system. In either case the user can type a DOS command such as "DIR" which will be executed after the ENTER key is typed. After that the command-line prompt will be shown again to wait for another user input. Please see commands for a list of supported commands in DOSBox.
