From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Executable \Ex"e*cu`ta*ble\, a.
     Capable of being executed; feasible; as, an executable
     project. [R.]
     [1913 Webster]

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      adj 1: capable of being done with means at hand and
             circumstances as they are [syn: feasible, executable,
             practicable, viable, workable]

From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

      A binary file containing a program in
     machine language which is ready to be executed (run).
     The term might also be, but generally isn't, applied to
     scripts which are interpreted by a command line
     interpreter.  Executables are distinguished in Unix by
     having the execute permission bits set, at least for the
     owner.  MS-DOS uses the filename extension ".exe".
