I am on a Macbook Pro on Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite). When I go to
git is there as a unix executable file. When I open it up in Sublime Text, all I get is unreadable machine code. However, when I open up a different Unix executable file—in my case, a shell script I had just written, but there are others—I am able to open up the file in Sublime Text and view the contents of the script. I have checked the permissions for both files, and they are the same. Why is there different behavior when opening up some files?
