DOS Messaging help
« on: September 28, 2008, 09:52:32 AM »
Hi everyone,

Me and my brother both have computer at our house, but my parents won't allow him to get chatting software (aim, yahoo messenger, etc.).  We have used the MOS-DOS posted all over the internet:

@echo off
:A
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
net send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A

But this is time-consuming and annoying if you are using full-screen DOS to do, ahem, other stuff; it renders a pop-up message instead of showing you in the message in DOS format, which immediately brings you out of full-screen DOS mode.  i know there is a msg.exe command, but how does it work?

Thx
