NetShell and Command Abbreviation

NetShell commands can be abbreviated to the shortest unambiguous string. This enables administrators to perform a type of shorthand for NetShell commands. For example, the following two lines achieve the same result:

netsh interface ip> show ip interface
netsh interface ip> sh ip int

This functionality is provided by the MatchToken function provided by the NetShell API. Programmers creating NetShell helpers can use the MatchToken function to implement command abbreviation for NetShell commands.
