My understanding is that an .ihx file is neither binary or executable.
You need to feed it to another program to make an executable binary

that there are many different extensions beginning with .dump,
so that the pattern should be *.dump* and not *.dump.

It also says that sdcc optionally generates a file with no extension,
e.g., "cc foo.c" creates a file named "foo." that is an AOMF or AOMF51
file.  And this file apparently is an "executable"?  What will/should
the code do with that?  Count it as an executable?
