Searching for "bin/cat" returns exactly one match. It's usually a good
assumption that an executable will be in "*bin/", so prepending "bin/"
will almost always narrow your search to executables. OTOH, using ".exe"
is not guaranteed -- try finding "egrep.exe", for example; you'll be in
for a surprise.
These tips have been posted before (by me as well as others), and I even
recommended recently that they be added to the FAQ:
