In batch programming you can use your DOS command internal/extarnal or any program you can run.

You have to just write your commands in the sequence in which you want to run them, in a text format, and save them with a extension of .BAT. Thats all you have to do in a batch file program.

How to Create a Batch File?

Use "notepad" to type in the commands you want in the batch. Save the file with the extension, "cmd" as in, "batch.cmd". You have a batch file now. It's just commands in a file.

Batch downloading multiple web pages

Looking for a way to download multiple web pages, images or other files from web sites without using a browser?

First, download and install URL2File Windows Application, which is the program we'll be using in this example (URL2File Windows Application is a product of URL2File can retrieve and save the content of a given World Wide Web URL to a local file. So, to retrieve the web page at and save it to a local file named tips.htm, run the following command from a Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box:URL2File tips.htmNote the format of the above command: URL2File followed by the web page/file address and the name of the file that you want to save the content as.The next step is to create a batch file that can call URL2File for eachfile you need to download. A Windows batch file is a text file with alist of commands, usually with the .BAT extension.Let's assume that there are three files named, and at that you need to download. To create a batch file to download above files:
  • Open Windows Notepad
  • Enter following three commands into the blank notepad (one command per file to be downloaded):URL2File
  • Save the notepad file with a name of your choice followed by .BAT ("download.bat" for example)
Now run "download.bat" from your Windows Command Prompt/DOS Box by typing:downloadand hitting ENTER. The newlycreated batch file will call URL2File three times for each of the threefiles and sequentially download them for you. To download other files,simply modify the batch file and run it again.

How to create a batch file ...

Did you ever get frustrated when you had to type a long list of commands in the command prompt window, even when those commands were already there on some site... I know it's very frustrating that ctrl+v doesn't seem to paste commands in the command prompt, but there is a way, and it's very very simple...

You can copy and paste those commands, to a new text document, and then select save as, hit the drop down menu where it says text document(*.txt), select all files, and name the file as filename.bat...

then just double click and run it from your desktop, or from anywhere else too...

you can execute the batch file in the recovery console as well ... just browse to the folder where the file is and type the name of the file

Good luck !!

What happens wen rtc Batt is unloaded

Hello. batt files or batch files are used by your operating system to run a list of commands created by ms-dos or by you. A good example of a batch file is the autoexec.bat which is loaded each time the computer boots to MS-DOS. Batch files are like shortcuts on your desktop, when they are run they pass information through the command line and these sets of instructions run commands or programs on your computer. Did that help?

Can anyone explain how batch file works?

This is kind of tricky not knowing how familiar you are with the commandline, but a batch file simply contains single commands and executes them in order (usually from top to bottom). A batch file (or bash script in Linux) can be very helpful if you have to run certain commands over and over again, so you don't have to write them by hand.

An Example: You want to store your network settings in a text file.
You open the command prompt (WIN+R) and type this line:
mkdir C:\Network
Then you type this line:
ipconfig /all > C:\Network\ipconfig.txt
The first line creates a folder on your C: drive called "Network"
The second line runs the ipconfig command and saves it as a text file in that new folder.

To make a batch file, you open Notepad and insert the two lines. Then save it as "IP.bat" (make sure not to save it as "IP.bat.txt"! This is the most common mistake. If you save a file from Notepad, select "All Files" in the "Save As Type" dialog. Otherwise it will save it as a .txt file and you have to rename it later.)

Now you can double click the batch file and it runs all commands in the file.

You can also see the danger. If you run a batch file and don't know what it really does, it can destroy your whole system. So make sure you understand it and/or get it from a trustworthy source.

A nice example of how complex a batch file can be is here:

Copy the content into a text file, save it as AllHelp.bat, run it and it will create a webpage with all available DOS commands.

Hope this helps - otherwise let me know if you have specific questions.

How to create simple batch files

Creating a batch file
MS-DOS users
Microsoft Windows and other users

MS-DOS users
To create a basic batch file in MS-DOS, follow the below steps that give you an example of how to create a basic batch file.

  1. Open an MS-DOS command window or get to MS-DOS. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CHDOS.
  2. At the MS-DOS prompt, type: edit test.bat and press enter.
  3. If typed properly, you should now be in a blue screen. Within the screen, type:

    dir c:\windows
    dir c:\windows\system

  4. Once the above three lines have been typed in, click File and choose exit; when prompted to save, click "Yes." Users who do not have a mouse cursor can accomplish this same task by pressing ALT+F to access the file menu, then pressing "X" to exit, and pressing enter to save changes.
  5. Once you are back at the MS-DOS prompt, type: test and press enter. This will execute the test.bat file and begin running the file. Because the first line is pause, you will first be prompted to press a key. Once you press a key the batch file will run line-by-line; in this case, listing the files in the windows and windows\system directories.
If you wish to add more lines to this batch file you would simply type "edit test.bat" to edit the file again.
Additional information about the MS-DOS edit command can be found on our edit command page. Some versions of MS-DOS and bootable diskettes may not have the edit command; if this is the case, you would either need to obtain the file to access this file or use the copy con command.

Microsoft Windows and other users
A Windows user can still use the above MS-DOS steps if they wish to create a batch file. If, however, you're more comfortable using Microsoft Windows or your operating system, you can use any text editor, such as Notepad or Wordpad, to create your batch files, as long as the file extension ends with .bat. In the below example we use the Windows notepad to create a batch file.
  1. Click Start
  2. Click Run
  3. Type: notepad and press enter.
  4. Once notepad is open, type the below lines in the file or copy and paste the below lines into notepad.

    @echo off
    echo Hello this is a test batch file
    dir c:\windows

  5. Click File and click Save; browse to where you want to save the file. For the file name, type "test.bat", and if your version of Windows has a "Save as type" option, choose "All files", otherwise it will save as a text file. Once all of this has been done click the Save button and exit notepad.
  6. Now, to run the batch file, simply double-click or run the file like any other program. Once the batch file has completed running it will close the window automatically.

What is best website to show me dos programming examples.. want to creat an exe file to pick up text files from a directory and send them to a printer whenever a new file appears .(without pc...

you mean a .bat file that can be run when a new file is added. let me see if i can find a good site for you.
My advice is get a good book! One that stands out in my mind is "The Waite Group's MS-DOS Bible" (1991?) This will take you through using the command shell and batch files through how the DOS filesystem is structured, memory managment under DOS, an explaination of how the OS loads a program up to wrting little progams of you own using machine language and debug.
Another great book is Dan Gookin's "Advanced MS-DOS Batch File Programming" that will also teach you something about operating systems in general in a nice, unformal tone.
DOS also comes with a BASIC interpreter called QBASIC, that can teach you the funamentals of programming while augmenting your shell scripts and doing things that plain batch files just can't do.
