⎕CMD Enhancement

Code: Select all
Result:
The explicit result; always 0 0⍴''
It would be very useful if this function were enhanced such that it returns the results, if any, of the command. Some handy examples:
Code: Select all
      fsutil fsinfo drives                                 ⍝ enumerates drives on the local computer
      systeminfo ∣ findstr /B /C:"OS Name" /C:"OS Version" ⍝ Get Windows version
This could be accomplished using a new left-hand argument.
⎕lib is returning results to the workspace - beneath the covers, it is probably command dir.
