I was able to figure out ls -RF will give me the executable  that are denoted by a star.

Then I need to take the ones denoted by a star out and list them
how would I do this in a script

OK I figured the whole thing out on my own here is my solution

ls -iRF fileLab
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*'
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*' | sort -u
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*' | sort -unk 1
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*' | sort -unk 1 | awk '{print $2}' 
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*' | sort -unk 1 | awk '{print $2}' |sort -u
ls -iRF fileLab | grep '*' | sort -unk 1 | awk '{print $2}' |sort -u | tr -d '*'

Open in new window

The more standard way of doing this is

find  fileLab -type f -perm /111 | awk -F/ '{print $NF}' | sort -u
