NAME

execrate - wrapper for .exe challenged commands

SYNOPSIS

execrate [ options ] command [ option ... ] file ...

DESCRIPTION

execrate runs command after checking the file operands for standard semantics with respect to win32 .exe suffix conventions. This command is only needed on win32 systems that inconsistently handle .exe across library and command interfaces. command may be one of cat(1), chmod(1), cmp(1), cp(1), ln(1), mv(1), or rm(1). Only the 2 argument forms of cp, ln and mv are handled. Unsupported commands and commands requiring no change are silently executed.

With no arguments execrate exits with status 0 if the current system is .exe challenged, 1 if the current system is normal.

OPTIONS

-n, --show

Show the underlying commands but do not execute.
