    "ls" and "mem" quits the program?! Windows users shouldn't be using ls but if you make the prompt take on unix qualities, some are going to forget and type in unix commands. Mem is a perfectly valid DOS/windows command.

    Does what it is intended for, and does it well. No complaints, well done.
    Although the user should read the readme first.
