That is kind of a broad request.

I suppose I should add that if you do not already know this, do you have to use DOS/CMD or can you possible jump to PowerShell?

Sort of like BAT on steroids?  It is 'almost' a real scripting language.  I've not used it much so it might even be a real one in some circles.

This is a utility that might help in creating .bat files as well. You can readily add commands from the left, and quickly see all the switches, syntax highlighting etc.....

Lots of good examples as well...

Also, using a Text Editor like Notepad++ also helps as it can highlight commands in various colors so you can easily spot typos.....
