I have a batch file called "whatruns" that displays executable files. It's best explained by showing the internal help menu:
Code:
[c:\tmp] > whatruns --help
WHATRUNS displays a list of executable files, by matching these filetypes:

  bat,cmd,btm       DOS batch files, TakeCommand/JPSoft batch file
  com,exe           binary executables
  pl,awk,py         perl, awk, python scripts
  sh,ksh            Bourne shell script, Korn shell script
  ade,adp           Microsoft Access Database (extension, project)
  cpl               Control Panel Extension
  hta               Hypertext Application
  ins,isp           IIS Network Settings script, IIS Service Provider script
  jse               JScript Encoded script
  msc,msi,msp,mst   Microsoft (CommonConsole,installer,patch,visual Test)
  scr,sct           Windows Screen Saver, Windows Script Component
  vb,vbe,vbs        Visual Basic (encoded, script)
  wsc,wsf,wsh       Windows Scripting (component, file, host)

Default executable extensions are defined by the environment variable %PATHEXT%.
Currently, PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BTM;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH;.MSC

WHATRUNS accepts directory names and /options appropriate to DIR.

The following exectuable extensions are automatically BLOCKED by gmail.com,
and may not be sent, even in an archive (.zip, .tar, .tgz, .taz, .z, .gz):

   "ade", "adp", "bat", "chm", "cmd", "com", "cpl", "exe",
   "hta", "ins", "isp", "jse", "lib", "mde", "msc", "msp",
   "mst", "pif", "scr", "sct", "shb", "sys", "vb",  "vbe",
   "vbs", "vxd", "wsc", "wsf", "wsh"

We can get around this by sending them in a *.7z archive (www.7-zip.org).
Here is the complete batch file:
