    Linux containes files that are executable, but unlike Windows there are no .exe files. Scripts are what start and stop programs.

    Unless Linux is vastly different from UNIX,
    that really isn't the case.
    There are executable programs,
    they just don't have ".exe" at the end.
    So, to run the program to copy a file from one place to another,
    I type "mv filename foldername",
    rather than "mv.exe filename foldername".
    To run my HTML generator,
    I type "tag b i u"
    rather than "tag.exe b i u"
    One *can*, however, run programs from inside scripts, and those scripts (usually) don't have extensions either,
    unlike "batch scripts" on DOS/Windows,
    which end it ".BAT".
    But even inside those "shell scripts"
    (as they call them),
    executable programs are invoked by just their names,
    and those names almost never have an extension such as ".exe".
    Email me if you want Too Much Information.
