(SUBSTitute) An external DOS/Windows command that creates a virtual drive, which is used as a shortcut to a folder. For example, the drive letter S: can be substituted for C:\SAM\BUDGETS and be used instead of that explicit folder reference. The command examples #1 and #2 below accomplish the same thing:
    D:\ANYWHERE>subst s: c:\sam\budgets

#1  D:\ANYWHERE>type s:myfile.txt

#2  C:\SAM\BUDGETS>type myfile.txt

To delete the S: virtual drive, type:
subst s: /d
