Default Good ol' batch files

I have button making software. It insists on naming the buttons the way it wants to. And I wanted to run test after test with different designs.That would be a lot of renaming. I looked into software that renames files but was not impressed. Then I remembered batch files. This is a list of file operations that Windows is to perform. So now in a split second I can rename the whole set and delete extra files the software creates.

I wonder if batch files are still a bread and butter topic in in books about Windows. Or for that matter, the Unix equivalent in Mac manuals.
