    .bat files are referred to as "batch" files. They are simple scripts used in DOS and other Microsoft operating systems to execute a series of programs.

    In DOS and Windows, a batch file is a text file with a series of commands intended to be executed by the command interpreter. When the batch file is run, the shell program (usually command.com or cmd.exe) reads the file and executes its commands.
