- Unix Executable File [closed] 2 answers
Is there a way to change a text file to a unix executable file without terminal? I'm using a school laptop that is a MAC and it doesn't allow me to use terminal. Im trying to change a text file or a .txt file into a unix executable file. I need to do this so I can run an .app. I need to or I cannot open the .app which is crucial to me. I have the application, I just can't simply run it because the file that uses the terminal to open the app is a .txt file. My friend transferred this file to me and it works for him. But I look where it shows a unix executable file for him and mine is just a text file that uses text edit. Thanks!
