I know that the command line has been replaced by the python window, but I was just wondering if there is any way to use command line within Arc 10? Thanks

Watershed delineation, but I found the model for it. – Andrew Dec 21 '10 at 19:51

I have asked our local ESRI support recently, their statement being that the old command line is dropped completely. Bothers me as well. You can still execute GP tools from the Python window.
