I am using Unix and Windows machines, and I want to make the Command prompt behave in a way similar to my Unix Teminals.

One of the things is the aliases that I am used to on Unix.

For example - I am used to

alias p 'ls -lt'; pwd;

How can I set this alias on Windows command prompt using dir command?

You want to look at doskey, which is a command built in to cmd in Windows XP onwards (and was a DOS utility in previous versions).

Simple usage example: doskey dirw=dir /w

Now using dirw will instead call dir /w.
