I think you are confusing the term ``shell commands'' with ``commands
built into the shell''.

What Emacs documentation really means by ``shell commands'' is that
you can invoke any command you can pass to a shell.  That includes
executable programs with and without optional switches and
command-line arguments, shell scripts (a.k.a. batch files), pipes of
commands, etc.  In short, anything you can type at the shell's prompt
will do.

If you have specific uses of batch files that don't worfk when invoked
from "M-x compile", please tell the specific details (what you typed,
what Emacs did, what messages it displayed, etc.).
