I'm sorry Prem, but we need to be nitpickers. If people don't use the proper names and terms for thing, we won't know if they are careful enough to use proper names when it matters. We may understand what he means, a computer doesn't.

Executable word is not dedicated to any platform.... and there is a gdalinfo utility available for linux. So I thought its clear..
It certainly wasn't clear to me. Especially when one post said this:

To me this immediately raises the possibility that Elvie expected a Windows executable to run on Linux. Especially when the name of the program was given in Windows format. Of course that might not actually be the case, and it probably isn't because of this:

But there's certainly enough unclarity in the post to point that possibility out.

I am sorry for making my post unclear.
@ Prem: I don't get any error. Gdalinfo is used to display the contents/properties of a georeferenced tiff file. When I try running the executable on LINUX, i don't get an output.
