It means the file appears to be a script such as would be processed by
a shell such as /bin/ksh, /bin/sh, /bin/csh, perl, etc. Does the first
line of the file begin with "#!" followed by a pathname? On Unix systems
that convention is often recognized by the operating system kernel and
shells to force the script to be executed by the proper program.
