Can BAT files be executed by an agent?

I have a client base that uses IE to reach my Domino server, at which point they are given a page where they can paste files for processing on the server. When a file is received, I would like to execute a program, preferably via a batch file. Everything I see shows execution of EXE programs only. Can BAT files be executed via an agent also?
Yes. I'm surprised you ask, since it's easy enough to try. Did you run into some problem? Let me know and I can follow up with you.
