How can a batch program change the title bar of the CMD window it opens up?

(I know this isn't exactly a Windows 2000 question but there's no "batch programming" channel here.)

    I am sure you know the basics of batch file writing.
    Use TITLE command

    It couldn't get much simpler than that. Thanks a million.  That's exactly what I was looking for.

    By the way, could you point me to the documentation that includes this command?

    I am sure there would be many docs on this one but I would just do a google search on "TITLE command " and it would give details
