Default DOS command line continuation character


On windows 2000 (not sure about other releases) the ^
character works as a line continuation char.

On XP the _ character works as continuation character.


-----Original Message-----
The Command Prompt in Windows XP has eliminated the use
of '&' as a command line continuation character. How do
you continue lines in this new version.
