I am writing and using many shell scripts (bash) on my mac. One issue has been bugging me for a while. When I look at the scripts in the Finder, they come up as "Unix Binaries". If I tag a file type (
.sh) then the finder recognizes them as shell scripts.
If I tag a file type (
.sh) then the finder recognizes it as shell script:
If I make the shell script file (without extension) non-executable (
chmod -x) then the finder recognizes it as a text file. It looks like the finder thinks that any executable file without any extension is de-facto a Unix binary executable. I thought the finder was peeking at a file content to determine its nature ? Is there a way to control that ?
