OK, how about this?  Even taking into account the differences in command 
names (mv instead of rename, cp for copy, etc) how do you make something 
like this work?

@echo off
echo Test DOS batch file
if "%1" == "" goto help
goto end
echo You must enter a command line parameter.
echo You entered %1.

Granted, the above example doesn't actually do anything useful, but trying 
to do something simlar in bash won't work.  Again, I realize you use $1 
instead of %1, but you can't use "if" and "goto" in the same way.  I don't 
think there even is a goto command.
