#17 WINDOWS BATCH FILES
Batch scripts are used to automate redundant tasks such as creating 100 folders or updating 50 servers. Yes you could do this 1 at a time manually but this is inefficient and a waste of time and money + resources.
A good well written batch file can get a lot done and makes our lives a hell of a lot easier. The Linux equivalent is called a shell script.
Typically batch scripts end with
.bat and some with
.cmd. Batch scripts are executed.
