Batch pause command

I was just wondering if there was a way to customize the message in a batch file to say something other then "press any key to continue....." or hiding the message with ">nul" thanks Batchers Unite!!!

I believe it halts execution IIRC displaying the message you wish to have displayed.

Well tahnks everyone for the help, i have found that it is impossible, i have found a new way to display a message. Thanks all! @echo off echo. echo hi echo. pause echo. echo and bye echo. echo Press any key to advance the rest of this file.... pause >nul The above has accomplished my desire for a custom Pause message. test it out!!!

@ echo Your message here

@ pause>nul

try it
. You cannot customize the text that PAUSE displays ("what you see is what you get" - Geraldine), but you can with CHOICE.

. Try searching for something like "choice +batch".
