Looks like an olde worlde DOS Batch Script beloved of the elderly gentlefolk of the IT world.
 
Accessable now through the command shell, but originally the bread and butter of the computer world.
 
Nobody uses it today unless they really need to or they are creakingly old.
 
Thanks for the nostalgic trip down memory lane.

Thanks Dave, you just called me "creakingly old"... That's just my old knee brace hinges. I'm not that old, but I do still use batch files periodically.
