Batch file

<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.

autoexec.bat is the best known example of an MS-DOS batch file.
