Windows Sleep command

by
I have a really long bat file where I need to introduce delay between subsequent commands. But there is no sleep command in DOS. There is an workaround for this, we can use ping command to emulate sleep.

Usage ping 1.1.1.1 -n 1 -w 10000

switch -n specifies number of echo request to be sent.
switch -w specifies number of milliseconds to wait for each reply.
