Your question is a bit unclear. What do you mean by "batch file"?
A regularly scheduled job? In that case you should look into the scheduler
that comes with your OS, e.g. cron (on Unix) or at (on Windows).
Or are you simply asking how to call another program from a Perl script?
Then look into e.g. system() or qx() (same as backticks) or even open() with
a pipe.
Or does calling other programs work fine but you have some specific problem
calling a batch script? In that case please be more specific about the
problem you encounter.
