Answers for All Magics
1. This is because…………. “CON” is a reserved keyword in DOS / Windows which stands for Console Device. Creating a file or a folder with reserved keywords is not allowed in all MS Operating Systems. For the same reason we can’t create file or folder with name like CON, AUX, COM1, COM2, LPT1, NUL.
2. In windows the folder name and the special system variables share the same interface , so when you create a folder with a system variable name it will consider that folder already exist!.
These special system variables are available irrespective of path. You cannot create a folder with these names also: CON, NUL, COM1, COM2, COM3, LPT1, LPT2, LPT3, COM1 to COM9 and LPT1 to LPT9…… COM means console, COM1 means serial port 1, LPT1 means parallel port 1.
1. Type same command and replace 99 with any number below 100, u will get the result. 99 stands for Column, how many times the sentence must be repeated in each line. thats it.. 200 is a code, call for FONT demo sentence, specially used for testing printers. Type =rand(200,0) u will get only 5 blank pages…
