Joy of TCC and Take Command - Repeated Dots

Everytime I use JPSoft's TakeCommand shell (or its free version TCC), I learn something new.

Today's lesson:

Repeated Dots.  In the table below, you  can see a TCC command on the left and the equivalent standard Windows cmd.exe version on the right.  Remember, in TCC you don't have to type the word 'cd' to change directories.

TakeCommand/TCCWindows CMD.EXENotes
 .. cd .. (nothing new)
 ... cd ../.. (three dots)
 .... cd ../../.. (four dots)

You get the picture.

This is a real time-saver when you want to quickly move up 3 or 4 levels in a tree.
