Spanish translation:El comando 'filename' // El nombre de archivo del comando
Explanation:
Without further context it is not easy to understand the meaning... If in your text the word "filename" has some sort of graphical highlight, then my first suggestion should be the correct one. In this case, the sentence would be about a command called "filename". If this is not so, then maybe my second suggestion is right (at least this is how these terms are translated). However, with the little context you have provided, I feel this meaning is not very logical, as filenames usually don't "execute" anything...

Usar "comandos" en lugar de "órdenes" no es tan buen castellano, aunque puede ser más común en la especialidad.

el comando filename ejecutará.....


Explanation:
From the context, it is clear that filename is the name of an executable command. Maybe the only thing missing or misspelled is the uppercase F!!!

You are lacking something in the phrase !


Explanation:
Definetively it shoud be some parentheses or brackets or italizing around "filename" in the original text. If so, <filename> is usually translated as <nomarch>(short for Nombre de Archivo). So, it sounds to me like this in Spanish: "El comando <filename> ejecutará los comandos contenidos en..."
I almost can swear that the original English text, at this point, would speak about a batch file or executable file or something like that, isn`t it?

Creo que no se debe traducir "Filename", ya que con seguridad ese es el nombre que aparecerá en el programa o software.
