DOSKEY has some special reserved keys that act as shortcuts.
Type the first few characters, press F8, and DOSKEY will reply with the most recent command in the buffer that has the same first characters as you typed.
In addition to recalling past commands, DOSKEY allows you to edit the command line.
DOSKEY's default mode is overwrite, so when you type a character it will replace any character already there.
Once you press Enter and go on to another line, DOSKEY assumes its default overwrite state again.
DOSKEY also allows you to put more than one command on a single line.
