I think you've missed the point of that completely. It's for use in aliases to check whether they were called from the Command Box, (notice that the command box is not the editbox).
eg.
Code:
cmdecho {
  ;Here's an alias that uses $cmdbox
  if ($cmdbox) echo -a This is a special echo that only works from the command box. $1-
}

Now try that alias in the regular editbox and nothing happens. But use it from the actual command box and it'll work (Use Alt+Q to toggle the command box on/off).


Spelling mistakes, grammatical errors, and stupid comments are intentional.
