It's a bit of an odd question, but does anyone know of a dos emulator on t'internet, where you can type in commands and see what returns, .e.g. CLS to clear screen (I think) or cd c:\games or whatever the other commands are? I'm looking for an example for my pupils (teaching sense not eyeball sense) where they can learn through doing and am wondering if any of you know of any examples where they can type in some commands "virtually" and see what happens.
but i could do with an emulator of an emulator if that makes sense, e.g. a webpage where you can type commands in and see what happends. To let all of our kids loose in DOS on computers has the word disaster written all over it doesn;t it!
it's going to be a 10 minute activity for the kids next week, where instead of me talking about the differences between a WIMP and a CLI, they can have a go at a CLI. They all use Win XP and have access to a wimp, but most have never used a CLI.
So if they can have a fiddle with one without causing any problems, as it's online, that would be perfect. Getting the technicians to install another OS just for this purpose seems a little over the top!
Ummm originalmiscellany, there seems to be a bit of a dilemma here. If you could find a site which will do what you require and your kids learn from it what's to stop them trying what they've learnt on the school network? You teach them enough they'll find a way in.
