Huh? "Reading into" more like "making up from whole cloth"! I said nothing of the sort. ebo and I said that a bat file could do the job of renaming the files easily.

Perhaps I am thinking about a wonderful world that existed in the past. 64K max program size.

Not the huge mess that Windows programming is today. 6,000,000 bytes to display "Hello World" HUH.

Yes, the DOS command prompt has been around since the introduction of MSDOS but its equivalent has been in every version of Windows including Win 10. In the dear, dead DOS days I soon grew frustrated with its limitations and switched to JP Software's 4DOS, a
superset of COMMAND.COM. That evolved into 4OS2, 4NT and now Take Command. There's even a free version, Take Command Classic-Limited Edition (TCC-LE) that I install on all the Windows installations I use. So the concept may be old but it's still available.

I was very lucky, with the box of blank disks I purchased to back up DOS 3.3 was a program I just used two weeks ago. (Windows 7 XP mode in W7) From 1990 to 2016, twenty five years is a long period for a program to be used. As soon as I looked at Lotus Magellan 2.0 I was out the door to purchase it. The only ones older I suspect are COBOL programs that never seem to die.
