No.

.bat files are a windows only thing.

The equivalent of a .bat script on linux is a Shell Script. (But much much more powerful)

Some info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_script

Here are some tutorials that helped me when i was beginning with shell scripting:

Hope This Helps!

then you need to rewrite them since windows scripts / commands are different from unix scripts / commands
