If you create a DOSKEY macro with the same name as an internal DOS
command, the DOSKEY macro supersedes the internal command.
To execute the internal command, type a space before the command name.
For example, if you create the following DOSKEY macro
DOSKEY /MACRO DEL=COPY $1 $2
then DEL behaves like the COPY command. However, if you type a space
before DEL, the internal command DEL is executed.
For more information on the DOSKEY command and creating macros, see
page 453 of version 5.0 "Microsoft MS-DOS User's Guide and Reference."
