Command: doskey

  In some versions of DOS, DOSKEY extends the basic keyboard 
  functionality of the command line interpreter.
  There is no need for DOSKEY in FreeDOS, which has such 
  features built into the command interpreter.

Comments:

  The external DOSKEY utility had been incorporated into FreeCOM.
  Use cursor UP, and DOWN keys to recall the history and HISTORY to display
  it. Use cursor LEFT, and Right and the END and HOME keys to navigate
  within the command line and toggle INSERT between overstrike and insert
  mode. Use the TAB key to complete the current word as filename; use it
  twice to show all matching files.
  DOSKEY is a command internal to command.com and needs no other 
  file in order to work.
