    Node Utilities for Windows

    Right now it's just a few wrappers around some builtin console commands but FFI bindings are soon to come.

    Command line tools

    Some wrappers for the below APIs to be used on the command line.

    cwddrive                          alias a random available drive letter to current working directory
    cwddrive L                        alias L to CWD if not taken, or toggles it off if it currently is L
    cwddrive L C:/some/folder         alias L to C:/some/folder if available
    
    makerunnable f1.js [f2.js] ...    creates a .cmd file in npm.globalBin (is in PATH) that will exec the .js

    APIs

    driveAlias('x', folder)                  // alias a folder to `X:\`
    driveAlias('x')                          // remove aliased `X:\` folderdrive
    driveAlias()                             // list all aliased drives
