Used for time consuming processes, for example compiling a kernel.

$batch
at> cd /usr/src/linux
at> make dep; make clean; make bzImage
at> <EOT>

The <EOT> means to type Ctrl+D to close batch. When resources become available (primarily a low enough load average,) batch will pick up the process and run it.
