Executing .bin files


I've downloaded a UPS management software and it is in the .bin file type. How can I execute and install this kind of file?


Thanx

Why don't you just type the name in a console window? Depending from your path variable (echo $PATH) eventually including the entire path like /where/your/program/resides/xxx.bin (replace xxx with the real name).
