    Default Command Prompts Question

    I know that this is a Java Forum, but I was hoping that somebody here could direct me toward the right resource.

    I'm working on a couple of different things in a couple of different languages. It'd be really handy if I could define a function for my command prompt to open this, this, and that when I type "java" or something else, something else, and that when I type "python" or "octave" or "html" or etc.

    Does anybody know how I can go about doing this?

    Use a script or batch file.
    If you don't understand my response, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    This has to be the most vague problem description this week. "to open this, this and that" - what!?

    As Norm already wrote: use a shell and a script or even a dedicated scripting language (you seem familiar with Python but Java like scripting languages also exist (e.g. BeanShell)).

    kind regards,

    Thanks Norm and JosAH.

    @Gimbal - Obviously, what is being opened doesn't matter. Which is why I used this this and that. I was simply asking for the language to do this with. I thought that was obvious. I guess not.
