What is Batch File?

This is a type of script used in Windows and DOS to automate certain tasks. It is essentially a series of instructions that are executed in sequence, and can either be invoked by the user or by a software program, or even when the computer starts up. Similar tasks in other operating systems like the Macintosh OS and UNIX are accomplished by AppleScript and shell commands respectively.
