----------
Typing command at the DOS system prompt loads a secondary commmand processor.
The -p or /p argument tells the secondary command processor to become
permanent in memory. (i.e. The new command processor becomes the primary and
there is no way to return to the the original command processor.)
The -c or /c argument allows you to pass a string to the secondary command
processor and to return to the original processor by typing "exit" at the DOS
prompt.  (e.g. C>command /c chkdsk -- loads a secondary command processor and
executes the chkdsk program.) The secondary command processor inherits the
environment of the original processor, path etc but any changes to the
secondary processor are not passed back to the original when the secondary
is "exited".
I am only aware of the /c and /p arguments.

Hope this helps.
