  EXE  /eks'ee/  or  /eek'see/  or  /E-X-E/  n.  An  executable  binary 
  file.  Some  operating  systems  (notably  MS-DOS,  VMS,  and  TWENEX)  use  the 
  extension  .EXE  to  mark  such  files.  This  usage  is  also  occasionally 
  found  among  Unix  programmers  even  though  Unix  executables  don't  have 
  any  required  suffix.
