Execute commands at the push of a button

I'm looking to learn how to execute terminal commands at the push of a button. What programming language would be best for learning to do that?

Oh, I see. So you want to run the batch files from an Intranet site. Here, try this: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/18980957/is-it-possible-to-run-an-exe-or-bat-file-on-onclick-in-html

Creating a batch file will accomplish this task. Simply open a new text file, enter the commands you wish to run (each on its own line) and save the file with the extension .bat This article may help you: https://fossbytes.com/what-is-a-batch-file-in-windows-how-to-create-a-batch-file/

well, I wouldn't recommend having a command such as that in a batch file, but the browser shouldn't care/be able to see what is in the batch file. Anyway, glad I could point you in a(?) direction.

And by push of a button. Do you mean like a key on the keyboard, or icon on the screen?

that does look like what I'm after, thanks, also looks like what I'm after may be impossible given they don't want browsers running "format c:" I'll just have to try it.
