According to the about page on Stack Overflow, it is a Q&A site for programming. From what I've heard, batch is not a recognized programming language, neither does writing a batch file count as programming. So, is asking questions related to Windows batch still officially accepted at StackOverflow? Or should they be asked over at Super User?
There are 2225 questions tagged batch on SO. The tag wiki excerpt begins:
There are 383 questions tagged batch on SU.

Batch and shell scripting languages are DSL's. If a batch or shell question is about the mechanics and constructs of the language itself or about consuming an API (like you can do in PowerShell) then it's definitely on-topic for Stack Overflow.
However, if it's a question about a batch or shell script but the real question is about calling a particular OS command line utility then it's possibly better suited on SU or SF.
For example, if someone has a batch or PowerShell script where the real problem is how to use
Similarly, if it's a bash script and the script isn't working because the usage of a particular Unix tool is incorrect then I'd probably pass that to Unix and Linux.
