Here is the thread from the last time I answered that question at LQ.
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...rocess-808220/

I'm still not sure whether the method I gave there is best (it isn't a perfect method). But I haven't noticed anyone post a better method.

file file_name will tell you; e.g.,
Code:
prompt: file rndpat 
rndpat: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped
