Where can I find documentation for Windows' command-line syntax?

I am specifically trying to find out whether there is a delimiter I can use
to put multiple commands on a single line. In general, though, I'd like to
see a reference that covers all of the command line options (like the pipe
feature, for instance).

Start>Run C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\help.com should do the trick.

Try: Start/Run/type "cmd.exe /?" [leave off the quote marks], then click
"OK". This opens up a help file.

In help. Where else. Type comand prompt. It's ampersand. Type redirection.

Were you too stupid to do this without asking.
