Use WAIT to automatically WAIT until the time you specified. At that time it
can either just quit or it can execute a command that you specified when
you started WAIT.

Syntax: WAIT hh:mm [command/argument]
hh:mm is hours and minutes (using 24 hour time) [command/argument] is optional


WAIT 21:00 WAIT until that time then quit
WAIT 21:00 CHKDSK *.* WAIT until that time then run CHKDSK
WAIT 21:00 DIR *.COM /P WAIT until that time then show a directory
listing of all .COM files and Pause

WAIT by itself will show a syntax message

WAIT can be used in batch files or with any program you want to execute at
a specified time.

If the time you specify has already passed, the command you specify will be
executed immediately
