Gurus,

Today, I overheard four guys in a meeting bandying about executable code
versus non-executable code.  I couldn't quite follow but what I thought I
heard was executable code was things like exe's and non-executable code was
like dll's (they can't be executed directly, they must be called by
something else.  Is my understanding close to correct?
