batch file equivalent for Unix

i was trying to do a simple batch file equivalent in Unix

when i write a single command in a file, give executable permissions and run it (i gave the file name as a command at the prompt), it works fine.
but when i have more than 1 command, say my file has

a.out
ls
ls
a.out

it doesnt recognize any of the commands. any suggestions ....
do i need to do in different way? please help

Thanks

Unlike DOS, your PATH must reference the current directory or you must reference the location of your executable.
Code:
a.out

would look like this to execute it from your current directory:

./a.out

Alternatively but discouraged, you would specify [b].[b] in your PATH variable.  For example:
export PATH=$PATH:.

by the way, ls should not be failing in the script.
