<operating system> (Or script) A text file containing
operating system commands which are executed automatically
by the command-line interpreter. In Unix, this is called
a "shell script" since it is the Unix shell which includes
the command-line interpreter. Batch files can be used as a
simple way to combine existing commands into new commands.
In Microsoft Windows, batch files have filename extension,
".bat" or ".cmd". A special example is autoexec.bat which
MS-DOS runs when Windows starts.
