Dir failing in shell mode (Win, 1.0)


#1

Not a windows user, just doing some tests on the platform – but isn’t this supposed to work?

shell> dir

Btw. it is not fully functional on Linux too:

shell> ls -la | grep a
ls: cannot access '|': No such file or directory
ls: cannot access 'grep': No such file or directory
ls: cannot access 'a': No such file or directory
