Which commands can accept multiple drive or file parameters?

DIR can:

dir *.bmp *.png *.jpg

Robocopy can:

robocopy source destination *.bmp *.png *.jpg

COPY can, when used to combine files.

VOL can:

vol c: d: e:

Any others?

where *.txt *.doc

Also its interesting to note that there is a difference between

dir c:\demo\ h:\missing\

and

dir c:\demo h:\missing

The first version will list only directories, not files and it will fail (returns nothing) if either directory does not exist.

MKDIR can:

mkdir \Drivers\Display \Drivers\Media \Drivers\Net \Drivers\System \Drivers\USB

Works with relative or absolute paths.
