Syntax is COPY <Orignal Filename> <New Filename>

MOVE (unsupported)

DOSBox has no MOVE command. Use the REN command to move files.

Note: Unlike MS DOS, DOSBox doesn't require the source and target filenames to be in the same folder.

CHOICE

Waits for a keypress and sets ERRORLEVEL. Displays the given prompt followed by [Y,N]? for yes or no respones.

CHOICE "Text to ask"

VER

View and set the reported DOS version. Also displays the running DOSBox version.
To set the reported DOS version use the following:
VER SET <MAJOR> [MINOR]
where MAJOR is the number before the period, and MINOR is what comes after.
Versions can range from 0.0 to 255.255. Any values over 255 will loop from zero. (That is, 256=0, 257=1, 258=2, etc)
