You are describing the command line I submit through DOS almost exactly.
I usually collect the command lines for my jobs in a single .bat file and copy
(ctrl-c) the command lines of the jobs I want to run. I then past the command
line to the window. It appears that the only way to past to the windows DOS
winow is to switch to the mouse.
What I want is a KEY command sequence for pasting to th window. The mouse is a
real speed bump when I paste the command.
