C:\WINDOWS>HELP DEL
Deletes one or more files.

DEL [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributes]] names
ERASE [/P] [/F] [/S] [/Q] [/A[[:]attributes]] names

 names         Specifies a list of one or more files or directories.
               Wildcards may be used to delete multiple files. If a
               directory is specified, all files within the directory
               will be deleted.

 /P            Prompts for confirmation before deleting each file.
 /F            Force deleting of read-only files.
 /S            Delete specified files from all subdirectories.
 /Q            Quiet mode, do not ask if ok to delete on global wildcard
 /A            Selects files to delete based on attributes
 attributes    R  Read-only files            S  System files
               H  Hidden files               A  Files ready for archiving
               -  Prefix meaning not

If Command Extensions are enabled DEL and ERASE change as follows:

The display semantics of the /S switch are reversed in that it shows
you only the files that are deleted, not the ones it could not find.



C:\WINDOWS>HELP DIR
Displays a list of files and subdirectories in a directory.

DIR [drive:][path][filename] [/A[[:]attributes]] [/B] [/C] [/D] [/L] [/N]
 [/O[[:]sortorder]] [/P] [/Q] [/S] [/T[[:]timefield]] [/W] [/X] [/4]

 [drive:][path][filename]

 /A          Displays files with specified attributes.
 attributes   D  Directories                R  Read-only files
              H  Hidden files               A  Files ready for archiving
              S  System files               -  Prefix meaning not
 /B          Uses bare format (no heading information or summary).
 /C          Display the thousand separator in file sizes.  This is the
             default.  Use /-C to disable display of separator.
 /D          Same as wide but files are list sorted by column.
 /L          Uses lowercase.
 /N          New long list format where filenames are on the far right.
 /O          List by files in sorted order.
 sortorder    N  By name (alphabetic)       S  By size (smallest first)
              E  By extension (alphabetic)  D  By date/time (oldest first)
              G  Group directories first    -  Prefix to reverse order
 /P          Pauses after each screenful of information.
 /Q          Display the owner of the file.
 /S          Displays files in specified directory and all subdirectories.
 /T          Controls which time field displayed or used for sorting
 timefield   C  Creation
             A  Last Access
             W  Last Written
 /W          Uses wide list format.
 /X          This displays the short names generated for non-8dot3 file
             names.  The format is that of /N with the short name inserted
             before the long name. If no short name is present, blanks are
             displayed in its place.
 /4          Displays four-digit years

Switches may be preset in the DIRCMD environment variable.  Override
preset switches by prefixing any switch with - (hyphen)--for example, /-W.
