NAME

       missidentify - Find executable files without an executable extension

SYNOPSIS

       missidentify [-rqablv] [-s|-S len] [-Vh] [FILES]

DESCRIPTION

       Miss  Identify looks at the header of every file it processes and determines if it is a PE
       executable (Windows executable). Such files can  include  programs,  device  drivers,  and
       DLLs.  By  default the program displays the filename if the extension of the file does not
       match one of the known executable extensions (.exe, .com, .sys, or  .dll).  Other  options
       can make the program display the filename of all executable files.

       -r     Enables  recursive  mode.  All  subdirectories  are  traversed.  Please  note  that
              recursive mode cannot be used to examine all files of a given file  extension.  For
              example,  calling  missidentify -r *.txt will examine all files in directories that
              end in .txt.

       -q     Silent mode. All error messages except fatal errors are surppressed.

       -a     Display filenames of all executables

       -b     Enables  bare  mode.  Strips  any  leading  directory  information  from  displayed
              filenames.  This flag may not be used in conjunction with the -l flag.

       -l     Enables  relative  file paths. Instead of printing the absolute path for each file,
              displays the relative file path as indicated on the command line.   This  flag  may
              not be used in conjunction with the -b flag.

       -v     Verbose mode. Displays the name of every 10th file as a progress indicator.

       -s-S len
              Prints  strings  of  length  len  with  each  filename. With lowercase letter, puts
              filename before string. With uppercase letter, puts strings before filename.

       -h     Show a help screen and exit.

       -V     Show the version number and exit.

BUGS

       The program can be fooled by any file with more than 1024 bytes between the MZ header  and
       the PE header.
