Part of the series: DOS

DOS is a general acronym for "Disk Operating System", though it came to refer to the operating system used in the IBM PC, particularly Microsoft's MS-DOS.

DIR can just be simple list of files and sub-directories, but you can so much more. We can use the information about Wildcards and Attributes to make DIR a kind of search function.
