I'm needing a way of creating a new command that only makes the Command Prompt respond a certain way. My project is to make an ordinary Windows XP command prompt into a command prompt you can "have a conversation with." Any help will be appreciated.

Please provide a detailed description of your project. With the information you presented, I can only fire off some wild guesses. Speaking of which, I seriously doubt a batch file will fit the bill. You'll need some decent programability to carry a conversation. A Perl or BASH script would be more appropriate. Essentially, you need to get out of the cmd interpreter and into something more powerful.

Yeah, a batch file wouldn't be able to do this.. the OS tools by themselves aren't umm.. "Smart" enough..

I remember there used be an old BBS door written that would have basic limited conversations with users.. I used to get my friends to dialup to my BBS all the time, they thought they were chatting to a real girl, heh fools....

Anyways, I'm sure there was a standalone application available..

I wanna say it's called "Lisa", but I could be wrong, it's like 7 or 8 years since I played with it, but I'll have a hunt around...

"She" was written in Pascal... so you might wanna grab yourself a copy of Free Pascal (http://www.freepascal.org) and hunt around some of the pascal source code archives.

That would be Eliza. If you google for Eliza+program there are some examples that might be helpful. I think it's been written/rewritten in a bunch of languages by now.
