"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Those keywords you mentioned are system devices.  The list will vary depending an what is installed on your machine.  You can use all of the previously mentioned ones plus any other ports or devices supported on your machine. The only one that springs to mind to add to the list are the terminal ones - TTY1, TTY2, etc.  It really does depend on what your machine has.

Can I just add to my previous comment?

SunBow's comment (the one above mine) isn't correct.  None of those keywords mentioned are devices available in DOS.  They're keywords more commonly associated with C or Pascal programming languages.

This is bizarre. I cannot split points therefore I will give graye the points.

...

I believe the fact that I could not split the points are because I only had 20 points there. Ah well... at any rate, thanks.

My apologies for not awarding points earlier.
