drive or a path.

VERSION

PC-DOS 3.0+

MS-DOS equivalent: SUBST (3.0+)

TYPE

External

SYNTAX

[d:][path] SUBST d1: d2:path

or

[d:][path] SUBST d1: /D

or

[d:][path] SUBST

OPTIONS

[d:][path] Specifies the drive letter and path that

contain the SUBST command file.

d1: Indicates the new drive designator.

d2:path Indicates the existing drive and path.

/D Deletes the specified substitution.

EXAMPLES

SUBST D:C:\VERY\LONG\PATH\NAME

Whenever D: is used, the path name C:\VERY\LONG\PATH\NAME is

substituted.

SUBST

displays the currently defined substitutions.

MESSAGE

Cannot SUBST to a network drive

You cannot substitute a drive for a network path or substitute a

network drive for a local path.

UNDO

To discontinue the currently defined substitutions, enter

SUBST d:/D

for each substitution.

NOTE

Because SUBST substitutes drive letters for path names, it

can be used to fool programs that do not recognize path names

into using them indirectly. SUBST can be used with certain

programs that do not recognize paths and can also be used as a

type of shorthand for long path names.
