About SS64.com, Simon Sheppard’s website
SS64 is a reference guide containing syntax and examples for the most prevalent computing commands (Web, Database and Operating System). The website is designed with performance as a priority; the aim is to return relevant pages as fast as a local help index.
If you still have questions or are struggling to get some command to do what you want, do visit the SS64 discussion forum, where you can sign up to ask a question or browse the archives.
