Meaning of BATCH FILE

 
Computing Dictionary
 
 Definition: 

(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.
