Re: batch file

A batch file is just the same as a command prompt. It reads a command, executes it and reads the next command. Moreover, it offers language elements for decisions (IF) and jumps (GOTO), and (those 2 taken together) loops.

Things you can't do from the command prompt (running a file for 5 seconds), run 2 files simultaneously) can't be done from a batch file either. You'll need other tools.

Re: batchfile

Just make 4 lines. In the right sequence.
