That rather depends on what you mean by 'batch' program.
Meaning one: In SAS, "batch" means to submit a (pre-written) program to SAS
in non-interactive mode, particularly for use in a scheduler. See
Meaning two: In Windows/MS-DOS, a program that consists of a text file with
DOS commands and some simple programming syntax; executed by typing the
program name at the command line, it processes the commands with (optional)
arguments supplied at execution time. Useful primarily for storing
combinations of commands used frequently in tandem or used to execute a
program with nontrivial arguments, and for simplifying program execution for
The former is usually the meaning used on the list (though the latter can be
useful for SAS batch jobs as well).
