If you want PmWiki to launch/execute a program on the server, search the 
PHP documentation for


And see for example how the core uses an external program to merge 
simultaneous edits (scripts/simuledit.php), or how the SysDiff Cookbook 
recipe calls an external program.

If you want visitors of the wiki to download a *.bat file from the 
server and execute it on their computers, simply link the file or upload 
it to the wiki with [[Attach:program.bat]]. To allow uploading of bat 
files see the documentation here (section "Adding new file types to 
permitted uploads"):
