In GNUwin32 or UnxUtils, is there a way to prompt a user to "Press enter to continue" and wait for the enter key, such as the unix 'read' command. I used to have an old command 'ask' that would do something similar.

What's wrong with using pause? – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Jun 18 '12 at 21:58
Thank you, that works fine. Its been years since I used batch files and forgot that. – Bill Jun 25 '12 at 15:19

This could be done with standard windows command pause. But it waits for any key to be pressed, not only Enter.
