manishrathi has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have some command line tools in TeamSite application. some of these tools have extension as .pl and some have extebsio as .exe. All the .pl files are executable files, then whats the difference between files with .pl and .exe extensions ?
If extension is .exe , then what does that mean ? Does it mean that file is written in different language than perl ? Even if file is written in, say C, then extension should be .c. why does it have extension .exe ?
