This site is about command line programming, scripting (mostly Microsoft Windows), automation, and COM/ActiveX objects. It contains information about VBScript scripting, Command Prompt scripting, C programming and the construction of COM components. Many caveats will be documented here.
VBScript refers to Visual Basic Scripting Edition which is run using either Cscript.exe or Wscript.exe.
Command Prompt scripting refers to command shell scripts that run in a Command Prompt window, a.k.a. console window, on Microsoft Windows. The command shell provided by Microsoft runs under cmd.exe.
COM components are Common Object Model components or ActiveX objects. The two types discussed on this site are libraries based in a .DLL file and VBScript components loaded/registered from a .wsc file.
