Batch programs (also called batch files) allow you to simplify routine or repetitive tasks. A batch program is an unformatted text file that contains one or more commands and has a .BAT or .CMD filename extension. When the filename is typed at the command prompt, the commands in the file are executed sequentially.

Any command can be included in a batch file. In addition, the for, goto, and if commands allow conditional processing of the commands in the batch file. For example, the if command carries out a command based on the results of a condition. Other commands allow you to control input and output and call other batch programs.
