Tool – Multi Tab Command Line

A while ago I was using a command line utility but was annoyed by the inconvenience of the default console application of Windows. For example, you can’t maximize the console! This is a little project which wraps cmd.exe and uses the standard input and output streams to communicate with cmd.exe. This makes it possible to have multiple console windows in one application. With the DockPanel Suite project I created this little multi-tab command line utility to make my life a little easier. Be aware that it has some shortcomings. Because it uses standard input and output stream it is incompatible with applications that modify the screen buffer directly through the WriteConsoleOutput API.
