For example, if I do
[OP@localhost executable]$ cat garbage lalala trololol [OP@localhost executable]$ chmod +x garbage [OP@localhost executable]$ ./garbage ./garbage: line 1: lalala: command not found ./garbage: line 2: trololol: command not found
Bash seems to be trying to interpret this "executable" as a script. However, there are two instances where this clearly does not happen: when the file begins with a
#!, and ELF files. Are there any more? Is there a comprehensive documentation of this somewhere?
